Left to my own devices
my child's mind became full

No grip left to hang on with
so easy to let go

Alone and full of wonders that
no one else could see

In the darkness I was raised
so in the darkness, I played

...and I played


Thanks for reading. I was misunderstood today and stood silent.

One ladle serves the soup that feeds the mouths of the many.

Being misunderstood is sometimes a lonely place to be - one stands alone even in a crowd,

This packs a punch and leaves much to ponder.

Good for you Boomer.

Thank you all for reading.

jjote, Blues Serenade and Alana, you're all so encouraging and yes, the following day I was glad I said nothing. All is well now. Thank you again.
