Parent sacrifices

Under the seas and under the oceans
I have seen all sorts of emotions

But, inherent aptitude of Salmon
Leave me teary eyed all night till morn

Seeing mothers and fathers spawn and,
Ply their lives to death so their kids can feed

Well, not until you become a parent
Going an extra on an extra length

You will not comprehend the details
Of sacrifice on an head and tail.

  1. “Well, not until you become a parent…” So true. It takes the man wearing the shoe to know where it pinches.
