Not Interested

Twittering Tales #130 – 2 April 2019

Why weren’t you interested

To know ME?

Don’t say I’m selfish; you all

Looked at me, saw what you

Wanted-needed-expected of me.

Servant-scapegoat, 2nd-paycheck

Possession to serve ego-centered

Pleasures often perverse.

I don’t miss you, finally have

A life in my world.  Fantasy?

Iridescent Birth

With final agonizing push, their world

Flushed with a sudden iridescence

Accompanied by first wail…the child

Of promise made entrance amid

Tearful shimmer…parents’ grateful ecstasy.

I hold my breath, tears already streaming, prayers repeated silently.

I am thankful, proud—I love so big and hard my heart may burst.

This child is all I ever wanted—beautiful, smart, talented, dreamer, a good soul—and win or lose today, she’ll always be my joy, hope…my champion.
