How do align texts in the child div

Tags: html,css

Problem :

I am trying to text-align to center on a div with texts. The texts inside the div needs to be aligned to the left.

In my jsfiddle


<div class="parent">
    <div class="texts">my text my text my text<br>my textmy text</div>    


.parent {

   //not sure what to do    

I need to have texts div center inside the parent div but no indentations on two lines of texts. I can't really set the widths because they all needs to be responsive. How do I solve this? Thank you!

Solution :


.parent {

    display: inline-block;
    text-align: left;
<div class="parent">
    <div class="texts">my text my text my text<br>my textmy text</div>
