My darkness

As the pain deepens

The chasm widens

Every approach from either side

Does some more damage

Crossing the bridge
A man crosses over the bridge shaped as a cross

The gulf more wide

I speak to my children

I try to explain

Then fall back into habit and only complain

They don’t understand me

To me they’re a mystery

The harder  we struggle

The harder we try

We’re still in a muddle

Still just getting by.

I don’t want to do damage

I want their lives to be better

but I can’t do anything right

I am just not that clever

I must admit defeat

and look into the voidtree-branches-at-moon-night_fytavyfd

It is time to retreat.

leave behind this cruel world.

      1. Actually as a parenting tip after a week of gentle support & calm suggestions, I shouted at her, I’ve asked you nicely 3 times now I’m telling you; you will talk to us. Instant results. To me this confirms my instincts, my family respond to clear loud orders not kindness.
