It’s a hard-knock life

July 14, 2012

First there was the dance performance.
Dancing, singing, twirling,
grinning, and the hordes of fans!!!
I cried.
Then to the doctor’s office:
two shots, two bandaids,
a popsicle and a plastic snake.
She didn’t cry.
Top it off with a friendly bbq
and it takes the sting right out.
But still we cry–
sometimes the heart wants to say
something so true
it can only come out our eyes.
