It’s Very Delicate


What harm is it doing to you?

Let him learn from his mistakes.

He’s the one who has to pick up


The pieces, not you. Your job,

For the time being, is to stick up

For him when he stumbles.


He’s at an age when he might

Turn and run away if he feels

He’s under too much pressure.


It’s very delicate. You can’t live

His life for him. He has to decide

What he wants, a life of constant


Brushes with the law, or something

Better than that. It’s up to him.

He knows what’s at stake.
