Toxic parenting, a curse unspoken,
A child's heart forever broken,
Words that cut like sharpened knives,
A heavy burden that ruins lives.
A parent's love, it should be pure,
But toxic parents, they endure,
Using their children to meet their needs,
Neglecting them as their heart bleeds.
Emotional abuse, it's hard to see,
A child's mind, it's where it'll be,
Lies and manipulation, the tools they use,
Control, it's what they'll always abuse.
Their words are poison, it seeps right through,
Leaving a child unsure of what to do,
A life lived in constant fear,
Their hopes and dreams, it disappears.
A toxic parent, it's hard to heal,
The wounds they leave, it's all too real,
A child left with scars so deep,
Hoping one day, they'll be able to sleep.
Toxic parenting, it's a tragic tale,
A child's life, it'll always derail,
But know that healing can take place,
With love and support, it'll find its pace.
