This poem was written, as saying, if I were a child, what I would wish to learn, and it is also a reflection on the things my parents have taught me.....Show me, Teach me

Show me the meaning of peace
show me love please,
not hate.
I want to know what
is my fate?
Take my hand,
show me the way,
teach me how to live
day by day.
Stand by my side,
and be my guide.
Help me to tell the truth,
and never lie.
Teach me not to be selfish,
show me how to be selfless.
Show that I'm no greater than anyone,
and teach me I'm no less.
Show me to be proud,
and teach me to stand
for what I believe in.
Teach me how to
have inner-peace.
Show me love,
won't you please?

Oh what a responsibility it is to be a parent. This sums it up quite eloquently!
