Growing up quickly

The saddest thing to me is a child
  robbed of fun
To be betrayed by Mom and Dad
  it has begun
The trust you once had dwindles
  away you see
And eventually hinders the person
  you could be
How is it that parent's can be 
  so clueless
And we still love them, but it
  is useless
We walk around trying to impress
  both of them
With anger and hatred boiling
  at the brim
Our sanity slowly starts to  
  slip away now
And we grow up wondering 
  why and how?
We look at everything with 
  suspicion and fear
Never knowing when love is
  coming near
Why is it that parents make
  all the mistakes
But it is the child's heart
  that breaks
So parents love your children 
  hold them tight
Don't let them grow up quickly
  it isn't right
