You Can Never

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 
You can never anticipate
The consequences when you
Procreate
 
You didn’t know you’d be a parent
For life
Didn’t know you could end up paying
A steep price
 
You can never foresee
The man or woman they’ll come
To be
 
You can never imagine
That it takes so much time, strength
And compassion
 
You can never know raising a child
Did not come with a pamphlet or
No rules
You never knew you could ruin
Them if you didn’t have the right
Tools
 
You never knew the pain you could feel
When they disrespect you
Or the disappointment you would feel
When they drop out of school
 
You never knew they would watch your
Every move
Or the possibility they could turn out just
Like you
 
You never knew the heartache you could
Conceive
When you realized the man or woman they’ve
Come to be
 
You never knew
 
To lay and create should be a love
Decision
Not for your own selfish
Signification
