“Just let go

And let them what they want to be

You’ll never know

They might be better than you and me

 

Don’t try

To be a super dad

Don’t secretly cry

Having a parent is the best they’ve ever had

 

They’re lost

They’ll find you, they always do

They’re tossed

On life to do better than you.

 

You’ll never understand

So don’t wreck it

Just offer them a lending hand

And respect it”

 

But how

When I see them soul less

I know now

What they detest

 

They detest emotion

The very fiber of humanity

They lack devotion

They’re anti unanimity

 

I ask for help

They give me attitude

I take a forward

They recede a multitude

 

My worry is for love

Where is it?

Why is it shoved

Can it visit

 

These new younglings

With eyes smacked to a screen

These wanabe starring

Whose soul is mangled to mean

 

How can I save mine

From this life of false belief

I wish she’d give a sign

So I can suspend my disbelief.
