Who is guiding the kids?
glancing at his cell. . .
she texts message "CM-on-by"
parents working late. . .
hiding in Pop's van,
’tweens anticipate fresh catch. . .
she unveils soft gem;
touchy feely starts. . .
lust anew spreads open wide;
skin to skin....he's in
swift staccato breaths. . .
thyck glaze coats her virgin field;
first time for him too. . .
lighting up his weed. . .
he inhales; she follows suit,
clothes next to the pool. . .
six weeks into fall. . .
pads in closet stay unwrapp’d;
cycle under siege. . .
girl in still-born trance . . .
little being on its way;
parents have NO clue

|Parental love and guidance run amok. The blessed children have not a chance, wander aimlessly looking for the answers. The realities of far too many young ones these days. God bless. JMW|

|Are the parents out of sight or the kids out of sight? Who's minding the fort? No one. Voila! Unwed teen or pre-teen mothers and fathers or, if not, an abortion! Biological parents, though, as they are so immature. This one's a homerun.|

|Wow what a powerful write that sends a strong message. If only our teens could see ahead in time and understand that for their actions they will have to face consequences, often ones that are more than they can handle due to inmaturity, lack of support, and simply that they don't want to...and who gets hurt, the innocent babies. Even worse is when it goes beyond pregnancy and the teens contract an STD or Aids...yes, if only they would listen to those who are older and wiser, stop and think about the consequences they might face or even realize that they could be nailing their own coffin shut! For a few minutes of pleasure...keep up the great work my friend!

|The degradation of American society - lack of discipline - the apathetic, don't give a rip attitudes affected by today's teenagers (and most parents!) - in the last days, according to the Bible, the love of many will wax cold - BELIEVE it - powerfully penned, Cynth'ya, well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|It's high time we put discipline back into the homes and schools of this nation (as well as prayer); if this were the case, things like this would NOT be happening!! Powerful, needed wake up call! God help us!!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <
