Blink

If I could shelter you

From harsh realities of life,

If I could protect you

From the bullies who torment you,

If I could save you 

From soul searing experiences,

If I could keep you untouched

By the crooks who abound.

My child,

I would do it in a blink.

But then how would you learn to live?

So I stand with my heart in my hand,

As I watch you

Navigate the murky waters of this world.

For I know

Each one of us has to 

Bear her own burden.
