Today’s daybook–


He wore his failure

 like a badge

It darkened

His demeanor

It was his liability

And made him

Even meaner

Written for Three Word Wednesday:  Badge; darken, liability


I gave birth to a child

While I was a child

Three years later

To another

It didn’t matter that

I was a child

I was still their Mother
