A Childhood Kept To Relive
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
An urgency to protect those young,
Only comes when convenience begins.
And the ones not so young,
Are quick to do that with that done.
Children adapt with a growing up fast.
And understand to comprehend,
Who protects them to defend.
And who uses them to pretend.
Yet unfortunately too many are left,
To defend themselves with no one else...
There to provide guidance by those adults.
Adults experiencing a childhood kept to relive,
As a result of keeping 'themselves' children.
