Adult Child (Poem)

A child without a responsible adult,

What is the outcome?

Sometimes the child grows up to become an irresponsible adult,

A sad pattern is an outcome,

Yet it isn’t always easy to be an adult.


Sometimes an adult wants to be a child,

Sometimes an adult says “I don’t want all this responsibility,”

Yet not all adults choose to act like a child,

Some deal with the stress of adulthood and continue to deal with the responsibility,

At times even a child doesn’t even act like a child.


There are some children that take care of their parents,

Some children have parents that turn to a bad life,

Some children act like their siblings’ parents,

Sometimes acting like an adult first means acting like a child in their adult life,

Still, it’s heartbreaking when a child is more responsible than their parents.
