"A little brain with, lots of wisdom"

I dedicate this poem to my father, who is no more here on this earth, both as daughter and father we have struggled alot and this is the one of his teachings for ne to be wise and strong. This is to not just a poet but a story to the youth and families to remind them that they should be wise in choosing a partner, and not to give up on each other during struggle. Without struggle it is no life at all. This is my very first poem , I'm not a poet, I will be greatful enought, if this touches one persons heart at least more…
