Love Doesn't Always Mean Like
Child of mine you wonder why we taught you honesty?
And caring and compassion and to never act in spite?
I could give you many reasons but the main one, honestly,
Is that to fit into society, you need to get these right,
True enough, as your parents we'd forgive you any sin,
But society will not and you need to learn this truth,
You need to know the rules if you're going to fit in,
And most people have no patience for the excesses of youth,
So don't misunderstand if we don't like the things you do,
It's our job as parents to catch you when you fall,
And though our love means we'd always forgive you,
Society will not because it doesn't care for you at all.
