i don’t understand
why parents think
their kids’ lives
are under their demands.

i can’t possibly comprehend
how a person—let alone a parent!—
could be selfish and pretentious enough
to base their child’s life on their own desires
and expectations.

it is beyond me
how a man could call himself a father
when his ego is a million times bigger
than his heart.

if you think parenting is controlling;
if you think you fucking own your kids;
if you think your expectations of their life
are more important than their dreams,

then you should stop fooling yourself
and refrain from calling yourself a parent.

because you’re nowhere close to it;
your heart is too shallow,
your mind is too narrow
for a beautiful role like that.
