It Is Never Too Late To Learn

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Didn't I say 'no'?

'Yes! '

But you went ahead,
And did what you did against my wishes...
Anyway.
Didn't you?

'Yes and I...'

Sssshhh.
So you know what this means?

'No!
What does 'this' mean? '

You are to go to your room.
Immediately.

'But ma...? '

No buts, ands, or ifs...
Just go!

~Honey? ~

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...
Well,
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.
