    So much temptation
    But I can't ever be sidetracked
    For all eyes on me

    Looking beyond today
    I choose to be an example
    I set the bar high

    i walk a straight line.
    i tread, oh so gently, thru
    the ruins of my past.

    Integrity rules
    I must walk the walk I talk
    eyes on me or not

    Afterlife depends
    upon existence on earth
    Heaven’s gate I’m bound

    Great focal point asimplepoet!

    My integrity
    requires i do right always
    For heavens at stake

    My little one eyes
    Are the only eyes that count
    best mom I can be

    can't tell young ones: "do
    as i say, not as i do!"--
    then live out a lie!

    little ones do see,
    then follow suit. always lead
    by your example.

    set an example,
    so yours will be the shoes all
    can attempt to fill.

    I have fashioned my shoes
    After those who trod this path before.
    My back aches, eyes sting,

    And my brow is sweaty,
    But I live their dream.

    Parental guidance
    Important to rear a child
    success can be reached

    Overindulgence
    Spare the rod spoil the child
    Balance is the key
