It Is Never Too Late To Learn
Didn't I say 'no'?
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
But you went ahead,
And did what you did against my wishes...
'Yes and I...'
So you know what this means?
What does 'this' mean? '
You are to go to your room.
'But ma...? '
No buts, ands, or ifs...
What is it?
~When our son's parole officer mentioned,
Parents can avoid their children...
From becoming incarcerated,
And detained with a prison sentence given...
By becoming proactive,
In the process of their children's discipline...
I think those comments were made for us,
To reflect upon in regards to the lack of our past actions.
Attempting to enact those actions now...
It is a little too late.
Our son is home from 'detention' to spend the holidays.~
And I was raised to believe,
It is never too late to learn.
Regardless of the circumstances.
