becoming shapes

                        we shape 
                                        harmful instances 
of our own inadequacies



inadvertantly making 
                                    that very part 
of our parents that we 
                                    did not want to 
become 
              
              that we did 
                                    not want them to 
become 
              of our selves



unwittingly 
                    committing 
                                          little
molestations of the heart

    • Yes, for me, it is my father’s judgementalism. (Hmm, new word? Spell-check is under-lining it…) and his disappointment. I still feel that one, so I just try to make sure my daughter knows that I’ll be proud of her no matter what she does with her life…at least I hope that’s what I do….
