Did you know?

Did you know

kids in your neighborhood’s lives?

Did your friends show

their fears, struggles, or how horrified to see men ignore their wives?

It is hard to tell

In general.

But hearing a scream from next door,

My brother and I jump out of our chairs and hold our breath on the cold floor,

Is their house on fire?

Or they have a fight for unfulfilled desire?

As kids,

We don’t understand many things,

A family life could be romantic,

It could also be problematic!

We wonder why some parents love to complain

While their marriages are entitled to remain?

We hope that nothing bad happens,

Patiently, We will wait for our parents.
