I was always taught to do the right thing
Even when I shouldn’t have to.
My parents voices echo in my my head
Reminding me what I’m supposed to do.
Take the higher ground they would say
Don’t succumb to what someone else does
People will test you if you allow them
Always be the the better person just because.
People will bring you down for no reason
Let them wallow in their own misery.
You create your own happiness in life
We created you and celebrate you happily.
It will always be my honor and a goal
To make sure I live up to what you built.
You made and inspired me to always be me
I will see that thru and live life without guilt .
