This is what growth looks like

April 3, 2012

It’s messy.
It’s bruised shins and
scratches on your elbows.
It’s climbing up a tree so high
that you scare the shit out of your mother.
It’s picking flowers you shouldn’t
and getting in trouble.
It’s saying I’m sorry
and meaning it.
It’s shoveling in pasta
with your eyes half-mast,
having a meltdown,
and sobbing at everything,
especially your terrible horrible mother.
Then it’s snuggling in,
I love you Mama,
and passing out.
