NaPoWriMo 2013, #27–Proverbs and Old Sayings


Old sayings and proverbs
were what my parents often used
to teach a lesson or make a point.

As a child, I would not be amused,
to hear them speak
with wisdom and wit that was against my will.

Yet now, I the same wisdom I do seek
as a parent relating to my child.

I find myself now repeating
the proverbs and sayings of old,
hoping to convey the message
just as I was told.
