As They've Been Loved - Poem by Lamerre Lucie

They'll tell you 'You must be kind'
'You must be good';
They'll tell you 'Will you listen? '
When all they do
Is shut you up;
They'll tell you 'You cannot know
What's best for you'.

They'll tell you that kind of lies,
But don't hate them,
Do not get mad;
For they'll teach you what they've been
Taught;
And they'll love you as they've been
Loved.

Let them the chance
To see your pain,
Let them the chance
To hear their own;

And learn to guide,
Be more conscious;
Eventually become
That parent you needed.
