'Parent'-less Children


In a 'parent'-less world,
Where do the children fit in?

Adults are busy with their own businesses
Occupied with racing the rats race
Drawn too deep into dreams so high

Adults treat time as money
and money as love

Children are just part of life
who were bought things to play with themselves
expected to enjoy the comfort of their parents wealth
required to understand life on their own
without the emotional presence of the parents

are lonely in a bustling world
silent in a distance so close yet too far

Their golden time will pass
only once in a lifetime
a single chance that will never to return
