Don’t they have any brains at all? We have to take a serious step with them! All their preoccupation is on size, size, our pint size! They just can’t seem to understand something very simple. You just can not appraise a thing by its weight, shape or its girth!
An airy cube of sugar is beyond sweet! A tiny jasmine flower’s fragrance fetches far! To say, that our parents can’t or not seem to hear us. They look down on us, literally, kneeling to intimidate us A humiliation in itself if you ask us to act as if we aren’t any better.
Ever seen how they patronize us all the time; “Aren’t you clever?” ‘Look! You are all grown up!” They even manipulate us into doing dirty things for them; Like taking the wailing baby while they did their daily gossiping. But worse still, they would even dare to ask us to do our homework.
We cannot and we should not keep pretending all naive! We have to put our foot down, show them we are their equals! No way “to be seen and not be heard”. We just make use of our lips! How they shooed us, shunned us if we try to tell them something logical. You’ll see, there comes a time when we will show them we are humans too!
