Poem, "Wrong Road"

“Wrong Road”


These are your

Children

A part of the deal

You signed for

Says

That you have

To fight for them

That you much

Do everything

In your power

To have then

correct

Before they

See the world

There is only

but one

Requirement

That is

for you to

truly know

What "correct"

truly Means.

There is this

Statement

One that I never

Like to hear

Another

human being

ever says.

That is

"I never ask to

Be here"

Neither In anger

Or any other.

Though

they speak

The truth

They never did!

It remains

The most foolish

The most

cowardice

Misuse of

Redundancy

They would have

Ever used

in their entire life.

And it’s not one

That I would like

To share.

I am never going

To sit in anyplace

Where there is

Arguing

Of any kind

With any kids,

So the

argument

with parents

type of kids

Cannot

Be mine

Because I am

The one who

would have

taught them

The ropes

I am not

going to be

Hung

By my own

Ropes.

Mother has

her role

Just the same

Because

by the time

My kids

Will ever know

More about

fathering

Than me

I would have

Already

Been out of

the Game!


The reason

you have

Your children

Are not for you

to be afraid

of them

What kind of

Love

What kind of

Care.

Results in

the adoption

of imminent

Fear

No kid should

ever Utter

"I didn’t ask to be

Here!"

Because they

have no choice

Truthfully

There is no other

Way,

No crazy babbling

Around here.

Either you have

A question,

Or your have

a Suggestion.

You have an

Answer

But it all ends

Right here.

There are

two parents

Mom and Dad

all orders are

given by them.


There are families

Living in the hell

Dying of

starvation

and thirst

Still they are not

Selfish and rude

everything

states

Them first.

And none with

messed up

Attitudes.

Children walking

six miles

To school

Bare feet!

And they are

satisfied.

Kids here only

walk when

they play

Still they are

always

Complaining.

There are

Children

That are

Eating

one meal,

The entire day.

Children here

eating as much

As they could

throughout

the day

and still they

don’t like it

that way.

One wonders

Have they

been taught?

Any thing, at all

Did their parents

have anything

to say

Who is

responsible

for this

Modern day fall.

It was not this way

Beforei

Bless!

I understand dear lady . For with Michael , If I am not in my element I can easily get carried away. It started so long ago. Himself and Bob Marley , they will forever be my heroes.

Don't get me wrong no one can take the place of the Most High God.

But as humans that's my pick and for nothing but their lives and music.

Thanks ChriSp, and God Bless. Stay well.

Thanks PDX. Did you see my response to you hub about to know?

I you were I am very proud to see your recovery , don't ever forget the ways of your parents , even if you feel they were not good to you.

WALK GOOD! Don't get caught up , or you risk spoiling the fest of your way. Remember Shakespeare is dead and if he was alive he won't be here , fighting with us.

Do your best and the reward from God , will be the best you can ever imagine. Stay true.

Bless.

Thank you very much Scarface , you spoke with that authority ,coming from parents who were in charge.

As our friend will say, if you won't listen then.

Say hello to my little fren!

And it was good!

I am not condoning this form of disciplining now , because these are the ages where children are having children , where in most cases the kids grows bigger than the parent so with the lack of discipline, they feel bigger than their parent and reacts.

But my mom would have cut me down to size.

Love her to death, still alive and if she chooses for old time sake to let me have one at 53 , I would turn the other cheek for great old time sake.

Bless and thanks for your thoughtful comment

Give thanks.

I may be quoted wrongly my friend but there is a lack of discipline amongst the younger generation today. In a namby pamby world where parents are frightened to chastise what do we expect. Look at the London Riots not to long ago and you will see the self expectant attitude.

When I was a kid if you did wrong you got punished and it never did me any harm. Brilliant piece that brings a lot of reckoning to the words Brought up or Dragged up.

Loved it Voted Up and Awesome.. Loved the Video, MJ Brilliant..........Chris

Oh! Frank I almost forgot, that's another hard pressed theory that my dear mother, worked very diligently to hammer into my young head.

"It when bend the branches while the tree in young"These lessons will be the very best for ever, till man is no more . A fellow hubber "bolt" will visit him soon. He spoke about his mother and I felt the same tremors that I feel when thinking about my mother. Bless. She's is now 91 nd pretty strong and alert and I know her mother. The stories are the same . Why should the better training go backwards. Look at what's happening.

The jails are filled!Schools are empty, and the kids are Rude!Only the Most High God at this time!

Bless.

Thanks Frank and I am laughing , my head off ! lol.

Well what if you also made up a word, I willfully placed two words in places where???? there is no law!

So I thank you sincerely my brethren , it sounds great because I will preach through writing in the near future. Is there a near future? See.

Thanks Brethren .

Bless.
