Until she’s 18: A prophesy

Once I stood in our kitchen
held our baby daughter
did our dishes

You didn’t help
weren’t a partner
weren’t a parent

I thought to myself
very clearly
stick it out until she’s 18 before

You decided to leave
when she was 18
I guess we make our future while

  1. Such a long time to deal with a person who you thought was going to be what you needed, only to find out what you needed was you. You amaze & inspire me with your strength and determination.
