18. Sons & Fathers

If I could speak my thoughts aloud..
this is probably what I'd say,
I don't think the way you do, 
my understanding of life is unlike yours,

We are poles  apart in all our ways ,
thinking things through & doing things too !
Though you see things your way & I do mine...
Neither one is wrong nor right !

Age differs...Opinions matter.
But we must come together you & I
To take the middle road of common sense & practicality.

Let differences go by..all things bad, sad & negative too !
As long as we see things the right way & always Eye to Eye..
What a World of Difference this Bond is meant to be !

Relationships can be very beautiful if both children & parents learn to compromise & accept that we are only human & make mistakes along the way...For all our sakes , we have to take the middle road in all of our dealings in our lives.

What a wonderful analysis! However the pot forgets Male or female, sister or brother, father or daughter all are arrows coming from same Bow! Many thoughts will be similar!
