I Have Learned
The mountain of laundry in a closet
Trying to wash it
Takes irreplaceable time for unfortunately
Articles of stories and lonely socks.
Strength in a bone is not represented by form,
but by the amount of breaks and
that are embedded into it.
Dads aren’t always going to be Dads and
Their love is not an apology and
washing them out of damaged hair
only makes it limp with necessity.
Art shows the outside world what someone’s inside world is like.
They were not only taught how to draw,
but how to find the wind. The kind that
a body and exhales with each mark.
Moms are always going to be Moms and

what it feels like to be

Learning never stops happening
and it doesn’t get any easier.
Lessons will grow into larger values and
into lives that will continue to bud and sprout.
