It Would Be So Easy

by Linda Jenkinson |

Parenting is tough. Even when you don't have the answers, you have to pretend that you do.

It would be so easy to say,
“I don’t care if you leave it there.
It doesn’t matter if it should lay
In the way for one more day.”
But later on, it’s you, my child
Who would have the higher price to pay.

It would be so easy to say,
“I don’t care if you swear.
You hear it, these days, everywhere.
A word’s just a word anyway.”
But later on, it’s you, my child
Who would have the higher price to pay.

It would be so easy to say,
“I don’t care if you steal.
Everyone does it; I know how you feel.
Rules were made to be broken, not to obey.”
But later on, it’s you, my child
Who would have the higher price to pay.

It would be so easy to say,
“I don’t care what you do.
It’s your life, it’s up to you!”
But you might be a parent someday
And later on, it’s you, my child
Who would have the higher price to pay.
