Brothers And Sisters - Poem by Mad Gone

Brothers and Sisters:

As a child you are thrown together,
By teenagers you swear to separate forever.
Young adults, all know the way,
For your stupidity you will surely pay!

As a mother or a father then soon after,
Moral principals, learnt and then adopted.
Learn new ways to bring them up,
Believing any other way to be an empty cup.

Now your children are thrown together,
Telling you it’s not their fault they were born.
Soon young adults they disagree,
And issue out their fair share of scorn.

Now that we young adults are but grown,
We listen to their foolish and silly moans.
For we have grown enough to know,
That what you plant and sow is what you grow.

Wiser men and women we are now!
As we make the decision to no longer row.
Reflecting back on past childhood times,
As the clock begins to slow and chime.

Old man and woman sitting at the fire,
Reminiscing on good old times as they tire.
Forgotten now are the childish, foolish grievances,
Viewed through seasoned eyes, as simple inconvenience.
