Teach

Remind me to take instruction

From the antonym of him

To take my teachings from

The supposition of a fact

 

Remind me to teach myself to learn

From the better part of man

Someone who can read and write

Who has a lesson plan

 

Remind me ne’er to listen

To the man who can’t himself

Remind me to leave his book

Hidden from the shelf

 

Remind me to ignore the man

Who’ll beseech at any cost

Who lectures, says it’s my way

Or the highway will be lost

 

Remind me to be thankful

For what I could go without

Remind me to welcome lost souls in

When others shut them out

 

Remind me ne’er to err on caution’s side

Hesitant, I stay

I should be enticed to wonder

To see the sunlight in the day

 

Remind me to cherish

What I never thought I’d love

To see peace at time of war

To welcome and betroth

 

Teachings and instruction

From the synonym of her

The antonym of ‘I know best’

Is the teacher who tells me;

‘As you were.’

  1. and please and exactly then when I forgot
    To respect the worst in this world,
    Thanks be to you for no-otherwise and reminding me instantly
    To perceive The great best in each and every of your word. Amen.
