The Bridge

Please don’t hate
Or despise them.
They worked hard
To bring you
into this world.
But now that
You’re all grown
You slowly
Started building
A bridge between
you and them
I beg of you
Don’t do that.

It’s the manner
Of approach
That’s wrong
What they’re
Telling you
Isn’t wrong
It’s just overdue.
Let the heat
Cool down.
Don’t continue
Living with
Unresolved
Problems.

Sit with them
And talk it out.
Listen to understand
Don’t listen to reply.
They’ve always
Loved you.
As your parents
They want only
The best for you.
But you have to
Help them help you.

Explain what you do
Show them.
This is all new to them
Give them time
Trust me
After a while
They will come around
They always do….
Sometimes they dont

But you have to
Be okay with that.
You truly must
make peace
In order for you
To embrace
Whats coming
In the future.

  1. I love the poem so much! Really, our parents do so much for them and most children just forget them when they’ve grown up. It’s really a selfish world we’re living in but at least there’s people like you (and me too) who genuinely care and love them ❀
