The Need to Love and Care for Children

The Need to Love and Care For Children

you have demonstrated –
for me
the absolute need for parents
to love and care for their children

for me
as an adult you are
it shows me all the psychology
that shapes –
bends and makes childhood

you have shown me –
what happens
when parents fail to provide security
how it festers –
and produces insecurity
how to suppress confidence
and to deny dreams –
it leaves adulthood –
waiting for self esteem

you have demonstrated –
for me
the absolute need for parents
to love and care for their children
