You're Our Child (Day 14 - a "ain't none of your business" poem)

When I first read this prompt my inclination was to go with something silly, like: "What's in the bag? Nachos. Nachos? Yeah, nacho business!"  Then when I really thought about it, I wanted to make it more personal. I mean, hey, I have teenagers, need I say more?

You're Our Child

Where were you? Where did you go?
Who were those friends you were with?
What did you spend time doing?
Why are you avoiding us?
Don't say it's not our business.
You're our child, and we love you.
