The Parent

by Carlet Horne

 Left again
 My child to defend
 With all that I have
 To him I will give.

 His Father
 Acts as if it is a bother
 To be of help to his son.
 He has no time to come.

 One thing I've learned
 in the last seventeen years,
 full of many struggles
 and whole lot of tears

 Is that you can't make a Woman
 into a Mother when she's not
 or turn a Man into a Father
 if in him, It's Not!

 So do the best you can
 and give the rest to God.
 He will Endow You with strength
 to complete your parenting job.
