Pause

The flame burns hot
the color blue.
The heart beats rapid
vibrating
drum like with no room for any other sound
The restraint needed to
keep emotion from eruption is
fleeting
Pause
Until the heat subsides
I know no other obsession
Like a mother’s.
Child grows
you let go.
You watch as child is judged
Praised
Celebrated
Questioned Ridiculed
The want
to cover them
Protect
Fight
Pause
You are in no control
As you are not of a heart beat
You’ve given
Wondering if it is enough
To prepare them for what is to come
Fear of falling short is
Pause
You must know that they are everything
The strength that’s instilled
was placed by you
Because of you
They will be praised
Celebrated
Judged
Questioned Ridiculed
they are free.
Pause

  1. Beautiful and thought provoking words my darling daughter. You now see how we as parents, now grandparents hunger for the success, no survival of our offspring!
