#SoCS May 7/16 – Apparent/A Parent

socs-badge-2015

The prompt word – Apparent or A Parent

My thoughts….

A Parent

Apparently I’m a parent
I should show you what to do
Apparently I’m a parent
A good example to you

From the early years of food and poops
And sleeping in your bed
Through school and education
Show you how to use your head

I should teach you how to talk
And always speak with respect
Think of what you want to do
And teach you how to reflect

Be there to support you
To lift you when you fall
To always show compassion
And do good to all

But sometimes I may slip a little
And not be all the above
Yet still I’ll try and guide you
With lots of mummy love

Apparently I’m a parent
I should show you what to do
Apparently I’m a parent
A good example to you

    This is a very lovely poem. Captures the human essence of parenting. Trying your best even if you are not perfect at it. I like this 🙂

    We put our parents on pedestals for a while, until something happens to remind us that they’re as fallible as we are. I think that’s when the real relationship begins. Lovely poem!

    This is most beautiful, Sis! All the mummy love in those lines but also the fact that you are human. How lovely for Mother’s Day as a message of love for your children!
