Avoid the drunken, older jocks at parties
Because they don’t actually care about you.
They just want to get laid.
Don’t listen to the popular girls
With their hair extensions and designer bags.
They’ll stab you in the back.
Be nice to Mother
Because she loves you.
You’ll regret starting unnecessary fights.
Excuse Father for leaving us
Because even though he was a fool,
He still loves you from afar.
Follow my advice,
Or you’ll never survive
The most important years of your life.
Your older sister,
Who wishes she had been taught
Carefulness, trueness, kindness, and forgiveness
Before it was too late.
