NaBloPoMo 2021: Do Good Kid!

I’d like you to remember that no matter what you do

There will be voices of dissent, criticizing you

If you do things differently, peer pressure you will face

If you do nothing to stand out, you might not find a place

In a top-notch college, or in a career of your choice

Whether you sing with the choir or have a unique voice

Someone, somewhere will find something to criticize

And this could affect you more than you realize

Unless…you are prepared to take criticism in your stride

Focus on what feels right to you inside

You will have to learn how to take

Constructive criticism positively, and changes make

To your behavior and actions without letting it affect

Your morale, your self-confidence, your zest

For life and learning, no one can take that from you

Unless you give them the power to shatter you…


When criticism appears overwhelming to you

When you feel like nothing right you can do

Take a deep breath and reach out to me

As your mother, your well of encouragement I shall be
