Don’t Make Me a Parent When I Am Not One

Don’t ask this from me as a favor. Don’t ask this from me what is your responsibility. Don’t be so cunning and clever. For your crime, don’t make me feel guilty.

I was five, I didn’t need to be considerate of her feelings. I was ten, I didn’t need to be a babysitter. I was twelve, I didn’t need to be in charge of your dealings. Don’t make me a parent when I didn’t choose to be.

Give up, she needs more attention. Give up, you’re the responsible one. Give up, we love you with condition. Give up, be grateful.

Don’t make me guilty if saying no when I am never enough for you. Don’t make your first child co-parent with you.

We are not your trial. We are not responsible for your second child.
