Don’t Follow in My Footsteps. ~ Angela Park {Poem}

footsteps, footprints

Don’t follow in my footsteps my child

I’ve walked some long and weary miles

I’ve fallen off the path a time or two

And I do not want the same for you

You will walk a path that is paved in love

Yes; at times it may be tough

But love will keep you in control

And through it then, you will be whole

There won’t be any missing part

Of your overflowing heart

I will fill each crack and break

I know at times it will seem too much to take

You will never feel that you are not enough

I will just give you extra love, even when it’s tough

You will never walk your path alone

I will help to lead you home.



Love elephant and want to go steady?
