    Worldwide Community: My sons all I ask is that you love Me

    My Father was a very kind and generous man
    Insightful and hardworking but understanding of human nature you see
    As He kissed us goodbye, He'd turn and say to me,
    give your brother a hand,
    My sons, all I ask is that you love Me

    One day we'd be helping mamma tend to the land
    Then we had our bedrooms to clean my brother and me
    Dad would smile his approval and say to me,
    Don't forget to give your brother a hand
    My sons, all I ask is that you love Me

    Papa taught us by word and action to be kind to the hired hand
    Early in the morning we'd go tend to the animals you see
    Mama and papa hugged us but would always say to me
    Please give your brother a hand
    My sons, all I ask is that you love Me

    Now that I'm older, no longer a child, I truly understand
    We've been given everything to enjoy life you see
    Each other, the animals, enough land and food for you and me
    Please give your brother a hand
    If we appreciate all that we've been given, we'll answer His plea

      Thank you Brain. Much bigger picture here. God has given us this earth as our home to cultivate, to take care of the animals to help each other as brothers and sister to appreciate this home and take care of it. Simple story but is saying a lot.

      Thank you very much LeJacques. I work at a children's hospital so I'm not always able to see what's posted - apparently I missed a question. Looks like MHenry answered you. Thank you MH.

    Hi, LeJacquesCesaire,
    Welcome to the watering hole.

    First, you should know that AlexandratheLate is a master poet, and it is fitting you should arrive in her world to ask this question. This is a supportive and talented community. The poets post more, because we appreciate their work, their talent, and the fact they are willing to share new worlds and new ideas. Our support encourages them to post more, and that is the idea.

    Now, for a more direct answer to your question. I am guilty of having posted poems to be entered into the Poetry Contest that are not strictly on point. Having slowly become mindful of that, I posted a couple of poems in the share forum instead. The same people seem to see them and comment on them, so I think I will try to do more of that in the future.

    Although the webmasters allow multiple submissions, 100 per poet might be more than they expected.

    I do weep for the webmasters who must sift through so many postings looking for the poems that please them most and deserve their prizes.

      Great answer, unfortunately I had already edited my post because I didn't want it to come off as rude-

      I don't yet know the accepted practices on here and want to humbly contribute and learn. Thank you for being patient and explaining things to me!

      Best,
      -jack

      Thank you very much MH for the compliment and for answering his question. I try to post under community what I see as relevant whether it's the support some wonderful communities offer or the lack of but then I usually color outside the lines. Lol

    Lovely tribute to "papa" and his good teachings, AlexandratheLate. No matter what "papa" (or mama) try to teach their children, there is no guarantee it will take. Merle Haggard, "Momma Tried."

      And that is so true -- all we can do is try and hope that they're listening. There are things that my parents taught me that I'll never forget. You are a deep soul.

        You set the scene,
        You start the plot,
        The ends revealed, when it all stops....

        If we appreciate all that we've been given, we'll answer His plea

        Very well set up, to reveal the treasure at its end.
