More Human, Less God

We all have a life - 
As kids, we don't seem to
See through the transparent glass
Of our parents laughing, crying, feeling… 
As kids, we don't see their tears,
We overlook sacrifices and tags of prices,
We overlook their burden, their hurdles;
Oversee the fact that they are more humans
Less God, less 'parents,' less idols we have created!

We, as kids, don't give them lives - 
Lives of their own that they cherish…
We as kids don't see them young,
Don't see them with their hearts racing,
We don't see them in their true colours,
We don't see them in their true spirit!

We, as kids, defend ourselves with the 
So-called "parents are supposed to be like this" card;
We, as kids, humble them when
We are the ones to humble and bow down… 
We question as we made them;
Throwing tantrums, they don't have to handle:
Little do we realize until we become parents ourselves…

We, as kids, forget that they had a life,
Have a life and will have a life after us…
They lived, are living, and will continue to live 
The way they want to - good, bad, ugly;
It is nothing but their choice. 

We, as kids, forget that mom and dad were 
Husband and wife before and after we are born;
They romance, dance, and perhaps fight:
We as kids forget - it is their lives, not ours!

We, as kids, overlook how human they are,
Just as they ought to be - imperfectly perfect;
How faulted, tainted, broken they are,
Perhaps just as we are as kids… 
We, as kids, forget how they are 
Just as kids as we are!
