A Better Way

He tried to teach me better, 
But I was young and proud; 
He wondered if I'd listen 
To him, or to the crowd -- 

And I did both, but first the crowd: 
Then found, with sorrow strong, 
That those who love you care enough 
To point out when 

You're wrong

One thought on “A Better Way”

  1. that was a hard truth for me to swallow too. Especially when it comes to people like my parents who I’ve always thought were just trying to ruin my life
