Not Just Parents

They raise us
They teach us
The hold us when we cry

They listen
They trust
The believe us when we lie

They are protective
And want what’s best
They love unconditionally
Until the very end
And all they want
Is to be a friend

They are not just parents
They are people too
They hope
They dream
Like me and you

They have feelings
Personalities and points of view

They want things out of life
No longer for them
Mainly for you

They have sacrificed
They have struggled
To never leave you wanting

Don’t take advantage
Don’t disrespect

Let them in
Let them know you

They are the reason you are here
They are your cheerleaders
Your guardians
Your motivators

They are your creators
