Broken Boys

Broken Boys

You are not a counsellor to heal all the distorted childhoods.
You are not a hospital to mend all the broken behaviours.

If a boy is damaged, it is not your job to do what his mother did not.
Put your heart and soul into loving him,
But don’t expect to plaster up the cracks.

You will not fix a broken boy.
