A mother's dilemma

Life isn't what it always seem to be 
The hardship the commitment and the diversity
Can turn a boy into a man and a man into a monster 

Choices to be made regrets of a mother who has seen things a bit too late 
Thinking should she relocate or have faith 
What power can she demonstrate
No father around to have a manly talk with her son 
Wanting to know why did he take up a gun 
Who was the moon that blocked his sun 

A child's cry could be far from understanding
A mother words could be heart broken 
Especially when its not properly spoken
A token of friendship is all we need 
To stray from the path our family had seen 

Hard work is what a mother think is right 
But affection is what a child have in sight 
So they turn to violence to maintain they silence
Skipping school and smoking weed is what they call living
For a delinquent in time it'll be they misgivings
And for a mother in the end it'll be a black cloud endless tears and a dress that would be full of regrets for centuries

"who was the moon who blocked his son" - a poem that could make some men think about how important it might be to keep in contact with their sons. Well done. Welcome to Poetry Soup Kevon!
