Parent's Woes (1) - Poem by U Win Kyi
When the parents have unruly teenage children,
the following things would have them much frightened.
Playing truant and drop-out of the class.
Hooking to the illegal drug.
Recruiting to the gangs.
Addiction to alcohol and always get drunken.
Huffing and puffing of cigarette smoke.
Becoming lazy, rude and useless bloke.
Involvement in rowdy street fight.
Partying wild late into the night.
Speeding and squealing the car on high way.
In terrible accident crippling and death, a heavy price he would pay.
A saying ' Mum, I am pregnant.'
without knowing the other half of the baby's parent.
Over-indulgent in promiscuous sex play,
positive HIV test would scare the light out of the day.
A midnight call from the cop,
is like hitting on the head by the thunderbolt.
Murder or be murdered is the haunting ghost.
Being killed by the drug overdose.
Rotting in prison by life sentence.
Loss of freedom there until death.
These parents are at a loss,
but pray with their fingers crossed.
