Reset

Sometimes in our lives

We need a break from it all

True for children, too

My fourteen year old…

Said she needed a reset

As a parent, it’s hard

Hearing you’re not wanted

But it’s a valid feeling

For a teen to have

Especially when…

So many things are going on

So, she’s at grandmas

With no phone, but lots of love

For her reset.

And as for me?

The waves crash in front of me

Teal and turbulent

Foaming with worry and tousled with love

For my kid who carries so much.
