wounds

 

…for those struggling with the demons they hold close.

wounds

forgive her if
you feel excluded

her hands cradling
something awful, unnamed

she is terrified
of the innocence

that chose her
imagining the hurt

that would ravage
your beautiful life

if she relaxed
even one finger

New school

He didn’t want to go to school that day
The kids were scary, he hated lunch
And the custodian was mean.
At last, his mother told him
The first day is the worst
But it’s a nice place
And besides that
You’re a fine
Teacher,
Son.
