Sacred traditions

tales told different

Teach me young, and teach me well
Give me something, to hold forever
To never abandon
And give to those,
Who will come after.

The child ingests a spectrum of lessons
Mother caresses with ancient tales
Gran thrills with lifelong adventures
And aunts warn with bedtime scares
All the rebukes endured
And rewards enjoyed

They soothe upon a lap,
Or punish on the bum,
And the young soul takes notes.
An adult perfects what need be perfected,
But holds a mother’s way most sacred;
Traditions kept alive,
Always listening to their inner child.

Each one, teach one
Share skills, ask a question
Many cooks, yet better dishes

The inner child learns best and learns true,

They know the secrets of happiness.
