Or they wouldn't exist,
Even an offspring's bond with a parent,
Can, with abuse be nixed,
Though less so in the other direction,
Either way, at what cost?
Lacking a relationship with one's blood,
Is your sense of humanity then lost,
Or does that connection of progeny,
Need to be satisfied,
So that if it's replaced with a good heart,
Your soul can still survive?
Or must it be?
What is the endgame, here?
To spend your days in peaceful contentment,
No matter the way which you have been reared.
