When lessons went astray - A Haiku.

Courtesy


 Lessons gone astray
Children look up to strangers
Bad shadowed morals

Soft brains hard moulded
Vexed parents glance the future
More wishful thinking

Vast horizon spreads
New chances flood, good or bad
Choose bliss, misery?

If time turns around
Right path back in clear sight
Learn from old mistakes



The tale of wise parents looking helplessly as their children stray from the right path coming in influence with bad company of strange people. When nagging, advising, scolding, hitting doesn't help, all they can do is sit and wish, pray to God that a miracle saves their little ones from the big bad world. If the children are wise enough to learn in time and choose good over bad, there is bliss. Both to the parents and the children. Else, it's the beginning of a misery-filled path to doom!



This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is 'BLISS'.
