My Mother’s Words

I heard you say,
“I’m so bored!”
And wondered why
You had no chores.

Idle hands
Can do no good.
They’ll make you sick,
And tired and bored.

Hands that work
Will play their part
To make you smile
and warm your heart.

A chore when done
Can build you up.
Make you think
And feel grown up.

A job or task
Is all you’ll need
To fill your soul
With self-esteem.

And when at last
Your chores are done
Reward yourself,
Read a book
and have some fun!

  1. Sounds good to me. Can I do the book without the chores? :-)

  2. This is what LIFE is all about!
