Why this difference?
When you scold him,
You go back again and express your love
But when it comes to me
You maintain a silence reproach

Why this discrepancy?
When he cries
You give him a tissue and wipe the tears
But when it comes to me
You scorn and call me emotional

Why this divergence?
When he is mischievous
You smile at his playfulness
But when it comes to me
You say I lack maturity

Why this disparity?
When he brings awards and laurels
You congratulate him encourage him
But when it comes to me
You compare me with others and say my triumph is menial

Don't think I will be shrouded away
From being a success because
you aren't with me
I will live to win and prove myself
One day you will have to praise me

No offenses to any granmas here..if any!

Ah, that is so sad. Playing favorites is never a good idea but I know that it does happen in some families. I have two wonderful grandchildren that I love with all my heart. I can't even imagaine favoring one over the other. Your poem is very well written.
