Child

Child
 
The day you were born to this world
Your parents were full of joy
And their arms are your light
 
And your mother and father
Worry and don't know what to do
Watch over you even in your sleep
 
And in the night, a sleepless night, your mother
Is still awake to prepare your milk
 
And in the morning you are in the lap
Of your father, who is so joyful because of you
 
Now you are all grown up
You desire to be independent
Even if your parents forbid, they can't stop you
 
Isn't it you that changed a lot
Disobeyed them, remained stubborn
And you did not follow their advice
 
You did not take the time
To think about all the things they've done for you
 
For you desire, only what is pleasurable
You just ignored them
 
And the days have passed
And you took a wrong turn in life
You are imprisoned in a horrible vice
 
And you approach
Your dear crying mother
And she asks "Child, what happened to you?"
 
And your eyes immediately shed tears
Without you noticing
 
You are regretful and realize
That you were at fault
 
Thanks!
