Wayward Daughter This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Dad:
I don't want to be crazy;
I just want to
Be
Okay.
The real world is a nasty place
And
Your obligatory parenthood chats didn't
prepare me much
For this.

Daddy,
Can I be a little boy again and watch
football for hours with you
Without a worry or care?
Please, Daddy
You say it gets better
And
These are the days I'll look back on fondly

But
What if
I don't get to look back?
