"It is dangerous to spurn the clothes you were born to wear for the sake of fashion;"
This beautiful poem is mindful to not forget where you came from. They raised you, made you who you are, do not forget them when you have reached success. Never forget who you are to become somebody else. Remember to be grateful and concious of who you are. Call your family, visit your mother. Before you get caught up in your new life, losing touch with who was always there first. Until it's too late and they aren't reachable anymore.
