Have you had the kid knock on your door, and you open up and he goes: Land lady calls…
Have you had a two year old stare you in the eyes all sick,and you running dry of anything, everything, money topping the list and here’s a loved one seemingly on the brink of death, drugs all finished up and you seem helpless and 5year old Johnny can’t take it no more his eyes are sullen, one glance away from his sick younger, he mutters: daddy, I’m hungry…
Have you ever been hungry all night? And only worried if the little you had had the family a little satisfied, and there you are, 7:00am on your way to the office already, clocking in at 8, leaving at 5, and on the 30 left with stipends as salary, and sometimes it came a little late… Okay, maybe a little more late.
Have you ever tried to cry before but a tear wouldn’t even drop??? Your mouth hanging open like you playing throwing groundnut, have you ever felt useless, like you couldn’t get the young one the necessities they needed to use and feel so less of yourself…
Have you ever contemplated suicide but had to reconsider as you said to yourself, what would be of these kids???
Even has just a youth, have you ever have to ponder all days, 365 what you’d have for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and same for a number of others, + where’s the money for foodstuffs going to come from? How you going to pay up the house rent as it expired already?
Have you ever try to be thoughtful and then be thankful! Have you ever try to be sensible and stop being so disrespectful to your PARENTS!
For their love you found them annoying, girl grow up they only care, say thank you to mum, give her a choking hug and profess your love, ‘cos you sure have no idea what she have let go so you have what you consider not enough. Don’t be a devil’s pawn.
Man up dude, in his flaws see his plight, he takes to flight in storms so you can majestically walk in the light of a fair weather, you have no idea what he has gone through, what he’s going through to give you that life you call inconvenient. Look him in the eyes till you see his view, you’d feel tears brew but hold them back, and try this, smile at him, say dad even if no other does, I understand, thank you.
Youthful exuberance, you should do away with. Be reasonable, Take a look at that gem or those rare gems and say Thank you.
