One Woman's Perspective

A continuum
Girl to woman
Winsome to wise
But movement is not always forward
And forward does not always equal progress

Moments, maddening moments
When mother meets child
And sees impending doom
But can only smile

Youth rarely listens
Deafening is the noise of their ever-flowing ideas
Yet age also cannot hear through the
sounds of arguments won and lost.

So they play the game
3 steps forward, 1 back, 2 to the side
She waits to soothe her
She longs to push her past her inhibitions
And they both continue wanting.
