Would make my hope pretty dark…
Accepting your reality instead
Would take away the needed spark.
Compromising my rules
Would bring a weakness I won’t like…
Quitting the battle now
Would cost more than just the fight.
Old while learning nothing
Is an idiocy you choose to sell…
Like every teen before and after you
You didn’t think that through very well.
I love you so much
That it hurts to follow things through…
I wish to see the future
And with your teen what you would do.
I want to say I’m sorry
But I am not sure exactly what for-
So I will just have to be here
When you choose to open a door.
You may think I shut it
Even with slamming done by you…
But someday light will dawn
And the truth will be there too.
