Parents Do Their Best

by tempeste

I recall when I was small;
thought my parents knew
the answers to all.
The truth was a tough wake-up call.

Life is a tightrope
Sometimes you will fall
But step out in faith
You are only inches off the ground

Till I was 6 and 1/2, I believed my parents had the answers and the solutions to everything ...I still can remember how bad it felt to realize that they were not perfect...that they could make mistakes and didn't know everything nor have the solution to every problem.

that's a big deal in any child's life....

I don't remember exactly when I realised that they did try their best to be good parents, though.
