They may be young
And not as smart as we would like,
But they are still able
To perceive the feeling of danger
Or when something is wrong.
Even though I have experienced this,
Why did I forget?
Although their ability to understand
The language is flawed
Due to the faults of the parents,
A child is still capable of
Understanding the tones and the hard language
The speaker uses.
Growing up in an environment filled
With insults of all kinds,
I knew that it hurts to hear the words.
So why did I blatantly
Insult the child, disregarding their feelings?
There is only myself to blame.
