Maybe when :: New Zealand Sonnet
Despite my requesting to both of you
to travel along with you in our car,
Dad, you didn't agree to take; Mom you too
just smiled, didn't pursue, left me in despair.
'twas last time seen you both, felt you didn't care for
left me in house alone, don't know what for.
Think once more have you done justice to me;
With your decision I could not agree.
Dad, you may feel, I've acquired skills to be
alone, have maturity but you're wrong.
Though closed windows, doors but I am not free
from fear; certainly I am not that strong.
Maybe when you return, I won't be in
normal state; surely to fear is no sin?
