It Is Never Too Late To Learn
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Didn't I say 'no'?
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.
