To be me

images-4

Can I be her for a millisecond just tonight
silent facing wood that doesn’t speak
to humans only to the forest
not to look behind, life echoing responsibility
wheels that churn, wheels that show
no sign of rust and will not seize that easily
this is who you are ~ what you must be
what you must do ~ what then becomes of
m
e
is it reasonable to ask
the one in the middle, the bearer of the
pain I see in others, the brunt of tirades
from the child of my loins
“I don’t understand who she is”
understand
m
e
how life has changed
freedom wanted in little things
nothing more ~ nothing less, I promise
give me the milliseconds of silence that I crave
to intake air, so I can breath
give me the peace of the woods, against a tree
not turning to my left or to my right
or even looking back
just
m
e
sheltered under the canopy

  1. Despite all that is going on you are finding the strength to reach out to your loved ones and yourself, for it is you Jen that must care for Jen. Those who rely on you want you to be you no matter how torn you may be, take care of yourself.

    • Pop does… daughter probably not, it will be some days before we speak again… which in a way is good, I have enough to keep me busy and don’t need the angst from her right now 😦 Thank you sweety xx
