As the seasons changed,
so did we,
our tastes were never the same,
we looked at things differently.

Parenting has changed too,
while we crave to bear children,
we detest nurturing them,
they have become a burden,
so much so,
we have delegated others to bear the burden,
to instil virtues in them,
as though they know what suits us

And yet we complain,
“what has become of these children?”
so we ask
why don’t we ask us what has become of us?
we care less yet want a lot,
why would we expect our children to be any different?

As the sun shines once again,
allow self to change for better,
get back to the basics,
to save the generations ahead.

Happy Parenting
