A Happily Ever After Tale

The worst times are behind us.

We’ve got a baby; it’s

so hard as teen parents.

Now we’re grown up and

I go to the high school most days,

My momma watches my boy

while I’m gone to school.

I get to share my experiences

as the voice of wisdom to

those sitting where I was

only six months ago.

My honey sits in jail

for something that wasn’t his fault.

He got his GED, and I’m ready

for him to come back home to me.

I thought I lost him

in those riots last month;

he’s healing up now, and

we’re writing our vows.

When he gets out, we’ll say “I do.”

The worst of times are behind us.

Now it’s time for our happily ever after.

Truly I’d forgotten what it was like to be around young people.  It’s all such a foreign world to me anymore, and it’s much different from my own experiences as a young adult.  This poem is based on the overheard conversations during my day.  Linking to d’Verse Poets Open Link Tuesday.

Autumn

September Haiku Day 5:  Autumn.  You can visit Haiku Heights for more autumn themed haiku.

autumn leaves falling

twirling, dancing through the air

take a final bow

brisk autumn morning

cold fingers on full udder

face against warm fur

the cat grows fuzzy

summer gardens dying down

fall settling in
