moments

And we do what we must. We sacrifice hope because we know better, to have the anonymous satisfaction of letting them grow.
It is never easy, seldom mutual – but I have debts to push forward.

I watch, I see, hidden in the shadows
the women they have become
the mothers and the strength
a brief moment of giving
pushing them away,
and leaving me, making them
leave
me
always searching
for the light.
