Parents

They think they can protect us. 

We grow up in this world

And they think they can shelter us.

That if they pray hard enough

And watch us very closely

That somehow that will save us.

Protect us in the way they couldn’t protect themselves.

You can’t protect us though and you can’t protect yourselves 

Nowhere is safe.
We must live while we can live 

And live preparing to die.

You can’t protect us.

I can’t blame how you try.

You can’t save us.

We will live and we will experience.
All we can do is stand our ground

And embrace the chaos within.
