This Kid: A Confession & Plea

This kid,

with his unpredictable antics

and a will only describable as “strong,”

with his thousand retorts

and blazing glares capable

of starting massive emotional

forest fires,

this kid,

with his unknown past,

tucked only on the mental shelf

of a mother unsure how

she’d make it but

sure of needing help,

this kid,

who tries my patience like a pro

and knows every little

button to push at

just the wrong time,

this kid,

is hard to love sometimes

but he is yours

and he is mine

and I give him to you.

I think that’s the best

I can do for him,

for my son,

your son.
