When I was a child,
I was the center of this hullabaloo.
Or so I thought.
And I have grown in ways,
it’s true.
But I am still that child
in ways, too.
So I am learning
from other points of view.
And sometimes I think
that I’ve broke through!
But somehow I know,
if those around me feel anything
other than unconditional love…

I still have work to do.
