Why do you argue with your boys?
why do you insist they argue with you?
Let the little ones lie
let them be their imperfect selves,
it might be good for you to see
they are you
and no amount of arguing
will change it.
Why do Mothers have so much trouble
with their boys
And blame it
on their boys
As if the boys are not paintings
they, themselves, have created.
Every stroke, every color, every texture
is from the artist
the painting belongs to the artist
and the artist raging
against their own brush strokes
In our world today
it’s sanctioned insanity
allowed, encouraged to be written about
and complained about
and argued about.
A more honest approach would be
to rage in a dark room against yourself
but maybe there’s too much of that already
and so the mothers choose
to rage at their creations
because it feels better for them.
Mothers Rage At Their Creations!
