I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up!

PAD, Day 25 - falling
no form today either

Today I struggled with my son
He sent me to the floor.
He hurts me with his attitude
I can't take much more.

No! I won't! I hate this stuff!
I hear it every day.
I want to help I try and try
I don't know what to say.

I wish I had the answer
I wish I had a clue.
I don't like him to feel this way
I don't know what to do.

Some days are better than others
He has a loving side.
And once we make it through the mess
Relief is felt inside.

Fantastic poem. I love reading your blog. I am passing on the "Stylish Blogger Award" to you. You can pick up the badge from my blog. Sorry, but it comes with rules. You can find the them (or ignore them) on my post for the letter V.
