That moment

Day 25: moment poem

That moment

I didn’t know that moment
when I lost all control
and called you a bitch out loud
would last longer
than any of the million moments
when I held you close
and listened with all I had.
I simply didn’t know
just how relative
time really is.

    Wow, Liesl. This is so amazingly powerful and heartwrenching. I often say that parenting is not for the weak and the ability to misstep hovers over nearly every action, thought and word.

    Hugs to you.

      Thank you Rachel. It does seem like a stacked deck, doesn’t it?
