Kids and parents (my own rhyme in English)

(Originally posted on Saturday, 27 May 2017)

My daughter wants to take part in a recitation contest at her school, but this time she is supposed to recite a rhyme written in English. I didn't like the two rhymes she got from her English teacher and she didn't like a rhyme I found on the Internet. So, I decided to write my own rhyme in English that would suit her needs – a short rhyme with simple words that she could memorize and recite rather easily. I am quite pleased with the result and I would like to share it.

Kids and parents

Kids are happy, kids have fun
Parents are calmer and kids wonder why

Parents are older, parents are wiser
Kids are just learning, as their life keeps getting harder

Life can be harsh, life can be bleak
As parents get older, they thank God they have kids
