Poem – fear of

From raising myself to be able,
finally some sense has come.
I found out more than I ever had been.

Every day now I’m going to get
everything else
I was
either or both.

After all the work for you,
another child is learning how to be
a little terrifying.
And then I remember –

read the way home.
Remember that it isn’t
about making it so.
Right now is the point.
