Poem: What were you thinking?

Updated on March 10, 2012

What were you thinking?

somehow I believe

that many of you

are simply there

hoping and waiting

for your child to

just magically turn

out the best child

in the entire world.

That's exactly the

way it should have

been seen in your

mind eyes, each

and every time.

Because that's the

way God made it.

But I guess things

have changed since

Mankind took over

Now it’s a roll of the


Why couldn't you


What wrer you


Was it for your

child to say to you.

OK, enough!

What am I really

supposed to do

with that which

you are giving me?

Who exactly am I

supposed to truly

become after all ?

See this type of


see this immature


How I am to

learn what's

the correct way

to act?

You have not even

tried much less

give me a tap.

Something to

remind me

What may be

in order.

or what’s selfish


Why aren’t you

showing me that

which I lack

Why is everyone

shouting at me?

When I heard

it’s the adults who

are the ones

that are supposed

to have the

children’s backs!

It sound so sweet

to know that all it

takes is two people

to have a child but

for the best welfare

the entire village to

should play a part

in raising that child!

So what will really

become of me now

since I am the one

you are constantly

Regretting, clearly

wishing that you

never had?

Should of float me

down the river?

But it’s not my


I didn't just have


If you knew I would

have been

this much trouble,

What were you


Why didn’t you

Ask your own dear

Mother for help?

She made you.

From here it seems

she did a masterful job!

But I guess you

did not know better.

You simply toss your

hat in the ring as you

Enjoy the feeling.

See what luck


Now here I am just

hanging on by a


Children don’t all

come out same,

Now it seems am

just a puck In your

selfish thoughtless


What were you

      We must always be thoughtful of others and realize if we help those who are more unfortunate than us we will also be helped. The Lord is always watching. God bless.

      Thanks you dear Eddy . It's takes nothing but an open mind, to be able to hear, when even the most broken up Gu gU gA Ga of a young child could possibly mean.

      Even if you don't truly know , instinctively, as humans with our kind or human parents , we would make the most calculated guess towards positiveness, and the most beneficial outcome, that we can, to interpret what they are saying , but because we do not fully understand we believe they are trying to say.

      It take that same understanding to know, that in this world, though we are humans, we are always going to be totally different individuals.

      Outside of our humanity, comes things that will blow us away, but it is the things that make us similar, that's truly, what sets us apart the most.

      Where everyone wants to be the best. If they are not already the best in their own God given way, through their parents. Which is that way they desire to be the best? You can only fit into your body .

      No one can represent you, better than you can, there is no one better at being you. Which you should be so proud of being, each and every day .

      That's the greatness we must pass on, to everyone one around , especially our kids. When your kids walk that's you that is walking. The attention that they draw , that's you drawing the attention .

      When you walk, all those around you should know it's you walking .

      The greatest gifts that children can give to their parents is love which leads to pride , that's the greatest life medicine.

      Eddy it is such a pleasure reading whatever you write , because of those very same reasons , like when kids are walking in their parents footsteps, it's actually the parents that's walking.

      When I am reading whatever you write I can see where and who it's coming from, and I see the meaning why it's written .

      Everyday is not Sunday but the master behind all the days remains the same, he is the Most High God, and only he is capable of perfection!

      Have yourself the very best day you can and keep writing from the heart, and watch it's true benefits. See your future.

      Give thanks and praises, have a bless day.

      You Sky are a true star;your words so powerful and flow naturally;there is truth in each word and I especially understood each word here.

      Our children we can love;we can lead ;we can guide but at the end of the day they are also their own person and we have to respect this.

      Your words I understand ;your messages I love and here's to so very many more messages thoughts friendship an fall else to share on here Sky my friend.

      I also love this Michael Jackson song.

      A massive up up and away for you.

      Take care and have a great weekend.
