Parenting is nothing
But one percent inspiration and
99 percent perspiration
Says me, a parent.
It is quite apparent
That in the age of WhatsApp
Instagram and Facebook
Children have quite a choice to follow.
Rather than your footsteps.
Your morals as parents
Lofty or low, does it matter?
It appears that the influence of the
Peers is the one they cater.
World has become one of a rat race
Equip them with essentials so that they can face
Untether them from your expectation
Tell them a few things of caution.
Let them spread their wings and fly
Wallow in your sorrow and within yourself, you may cry.
Love is the freedom of choice
Grant them fully with a poise.
They may return to you once in a while
Moments to be cherished, you can hail.
So, these are some rules for parenting
I follow them, quite unrelenting.
