Two Different Entities – Written January 2013 (Aged 37)

Tow Different Entities

perhaps, sometimes,
parents are to blame
is that so bad?
it is only human –
to make mistakes
no one –
has to be a parent –
to realise –
the difficulties of the job
even if like us
you have not played the game
and joined the parenthood
but sometimes, perhaps
there is damage
and all the love in the world –
does not prevent mistakes
but it is human
so why be so afraid
why feel so much shame
why swim in such guilt
blame and responsibility
are two,
very different entities
