Mommy’s Advice

I remember when I was still a girl so young and innocent,

I’d wear mommy’s shoes, dress, and spray her perfume scent.

I will go to mommy with a smile that can’t cost a dime or cent.

Then ask her, “Mommy do I look beautiful and decent?”


She would quickly stop, look at me and suddenly smile.

She’ll say “You’re beautiful my dear, everything is worthwhile!

Though, remember that physical beauty will serve you for quite a while,

Hence it is more important to build character with all the extra mile.”


Keep in mind that real beauty comes from what is within.

Your smile could emanate your heart that can’t be seen,

Your stature on how you deal with other people to begin,

with love and compassion, and a life away from sin.


Make-up and fancy clothes will not do you any good,

because it cannot hide a heart that is really crude.

If you have the right heart and such a pleasant attitude,

then you don’t need those things to alter your mood.


Smile and try to live a life that is full,

to others, be patient, strive not to be cruel.

Strive to live a life within God’s rule,

and  for sure, you will be really beautiful!
