The Kids R Alright?

Sometimes a kid can be an 18 year royalty check

Mother’s cashing checks and

Taking all the excess leaving the kids with crumbs

A child with no support

But the kids are alright.

 

Sometimes a kid can be used as a weapon

Pint sized pawns used as spies

Extracting information from all

Twisting truth with the fiction of Mother’s ambition

But the kids are alright

 

Sometimes a kid can be an executioner

Wielding weapons given to by the mother

To inflict pain upon his brothers

Giving birth to a darkness in his heart

But the kids are alright

 

Sometimes a kid can be held for ransom

In the privacy of her own home

A mother refuses to let a son visit his father

Hatred for the father disguised as discipline for the son

The isolation only breeds contempt

But the kids are alright

 

How much abuse can the kids take

Before the kids are not alright

Their psyches cracking like eggshells

Under the gaze of parental supervision

As the adults stood by and watched
