Tiffany: Untethered

Underneath the agnst and nashing of teeth, the grumbling and angry words

I hear you.

The mounting frustrations of growing and becoming
a responsible adult.

Oh, to regress and be as a young child again



surrounded by a world to discover and explore

that is safe
and guarded by parental love.

And yet,

Independence calls your name,

and you respond

and enjoy

and discover


Your capabilities, your strengths, your limitations;

your love, and your longing

for a space on the earth

where you can rest

and let the burdens of the world

belong to Mom

once again.
