Without a moment of neglect

Parenting, oft analyzed
With no agreement in opinion
Admired from outside
Mired while within
He was uptight, fearful
Thoughtlessly transformed
Into constant putdowns
His offspring suffered
Bore it well, till a day
With tears became
deluged. Till the yoke
of burden heightened
Days were woozy with
Strange emotions. Where
he lacked, others stepped
up. Seamlessly, impeccably.
