Parents are patiently waiting for their kids
Kids who are now on summer vacation
Vacation from tests, boredom, and school
School where they all must learn
Learn things they didnโ€™t know they needed
Needed in order to graduate
Graduate to go to a college
College where theyโ€™ll earn a degree
Degree in what? Oh, difficult decisionsโ€ฆ
Decisions that define their future, shape a life
Life that will keep going on and on after
After these things are done and theyโ€™re on their own
Own a house, start their own family, and become parentsโ€ฆ
Parents that are patiently waiting for their kids.

This one is so different than what I usually write. I’m not sure why it spilled out of me the way it did, but the whole thing happened in under 30 minutes, haha. XD

  2. Bravo! I love the style — the circular nature of the story appearing in the circular style of the physical writing ๐Ÿ™‚ And how true it is…seems we’re often on a treadmill circling round and round…Thank you so much for joining us again this week โค
