(Show Details...)

Poor children don't know if their coming or going today.
at least marriage mainly kept families together, people used to have morals, but now, anything goes, and we are seeing the consequences.

Are you my daddy

''Are you my daddy'' the little child cried.

''No I'm your uncle'' the grown up replied,

''Are you going to stay, or go away  like my uncles always do?''

'' I love your mummy I'll stay I promise you I'll do''.

'' Everyone loves my mummy,'' the child says with a sigh.

''Will you take me to MacDonald's and buy me a toy and take me for a ride?''

''Yes I promise, but I maybe away for a while''.


''Are you my Daddy'' the little child cried,

''No I'm your uncle'', the grown up replied,

''Are you going away like all my uncles do?''.............................................

    this kid not confused but broken down and knows not to get attached... as if he's expecting the disappointment... enjoyed your read...p.d.

    What a sad way for a kid to think of uncles as. I liked this.
