A poem written by one of our children
Responsibility, trust, respect, age
Just ’cause you’re responsible doesn’t mean people trust you.
That’s something that you will have to gain.
Trust doesn’t come with responsibility nor respect.
There is a lot of pain to come with it.
Respect, you will win some and lose some.
Actually, lose a lot.
Age, you grow older.
you will find yourself crying your eyes out in a hospital parking lot.
Realizing that being mature sucks a lot.
You’ve worked hard and even fought it.
You’ve thought it over and over again and again
Don’t know what the conclusion is.
Then finally the answer is:
This world is fused with famine and wealth.
You realize you’re the inbetweener.
