Life is a Rhyme

I’ve spent 17 years waiting for this moment.

Prepping, preening, presenting, & protecting.

Today and for the next 3 weeks we will find out where my son got into college. A culmination of struggles and wins set to poetry…

 

Struggling to pay tuition

School meetings with no fruition.

Teacher contrition.

 

Wiped Tears

Realized Fears.

Joyful moments.

Stress.

 

Therapists

Clenched Fists.

Countless nights

Tons of Rewrites

So many fights.

 

Loving hearts

Bursting with pride.

Failed attempts

Set aside.

 

Applications.

Uphill climbs.

Essays, essays,

So many times.

 

Exhaustion.

Waiting.

Anticipating.

The day is coming to decide.

 

He will leave

Hop on a plane.

Wave goodbye

I’ll go insane.

 

Pride.

Love.

Time so fast.

Soon these years will be the past.

 

But at that moment

I will know

A fine young man

I did help grow.
