Parenting – Poem


Freedom is not

an eagle gliding

It is not release from bars, or chains

It has nothing to do with space

or confinement

The key

To unlock my liberty

Is your forgiveness

For the times

I was not

who you needed me to be

For the choices I made

Or failed to make

Which altered your course

From a brighter destination

and I don’t think your “It’s OK”

can lighten the burden

of my responsibility
