Just more of the same





Young Ann was hopeful
She was shy but she still grinned
So her mom was pleased

Tanya just shrugged
Tolerant of him for now
She couldn’t care less

Donna shook her head
Mom had brought home a boyfriend
Nothing but distrust

For she remembered
All the rows and the screaming 
Just more of the same

  2. Young minds exposed to a lot of unwanted spectacles not of their choosing but unfairly imposed upon them. Unlucky to be so! Great lines oldegg!

  3. Sometimes the search for love includes innocent casualties. What do you want to bet the kids carry the distrust all their lives.
