A Better Place

By Gene Groner, Marines

Writing Type: Poem

By Gene Allen Groner
VA Medical Center--Kansas City, MO

My mother always told me,

“Leave the place better than you found it.”

Whether it’s a room or the whole world,

Leave it a better place.


I passed this along to my children;

Now they know it as I do.

Whether it’s a room or the whole world,

Leave it a better place.


They shared it with their children;

Now my grandchildren know it as we do.

Whether it’s a room or the whole world,

Leave it a better place.


So I share it now with you;

Now you know it as we all do.

Whether it’s a room or the whole world,

Leave it a better place.




Notes: My mother has passed into heaven now, but she is always with me in spirit and in my heart. May she rest in peace. Baruch HaShem.
