A MAN WITH INTEGRITY


Why must my son constantly test his mom and me
Can't he see all the trust he loses
In our ability to foresee what his future could be
When he has no problem looking us in the eyes
To tell his despicable lies
When it just makes us want to cry
Looking for answers why

When it gets away from his ability to see
The man that his mom and I have raised him up to be
A man with integrity who is able to keep his promise
To never lie to always reach for the sky
We taught him that anything in life worth having
Requires him to be straight with others
So he doesn't always have to run for cover

In spite of your lies that jeopardize
So many things you do not realize
Because when you learn to disguise the truth
That compromise your future
On which you have to rely
To be able to get by

We are here to advise not criticize
Life is not about the lies
To that, your mom and I can testify
We would like to summarize
You will never see life's highest high's
It will only advertise
You're a man who is about the lies

Where few can sympathize
It will only capsize all your hopes and dreams
That fills your life with the sunlight
That holds you upright in Gods light
Putting your life in flight
Allowing you to become a man with integrity

That everyone can see
Who we brought you up to be
So please don't ever lie to anybody
If you want your life to be happy and free
Because people will show you respect
From what reflects from your eyes,
Not your dirty little lies

As parents, we all deal with our kids at one time or another lying to us though we bring them up to be truthful with us.
