Parent Poem

The parent-child relationship is a precarious one. We want everything for our children; we want them to have what we didn't, but we need to make sure that they want it too.

A Father's Dream

© Kitty L. Jones

Unintentionally I push
Leading you where I once was
Hoping in some way
You'll be better
or get further
I don't mean to live through you
I only want the best
Now, go out there
Catch that ball
Slide into first
Don't let me down
I now you can do it
Because you are who I was first
