    It Takes a Big Man…

    It takes a lot to admit you’re wrong, but it takes even more to admit to your faults. One of mine is that I am very sensitive to being told I’m not responsible or that I am a bad parent. Don’t tell me I’m either because unless you are around me and my kids 100% of the time you have no idea whether I am a good parent or not, or if I’m completely irresponsible. If you see one moment out of thousands of moments, does that even give you the right to judge me on it? Maybe. Maybe not. But what if you are around me and my kids…

    The Day Before

    I can’t believe it’s already here, the day before I write the last poem I will write for OctPoWriMo. Guys and gals, it has been a trip. I can’t believe where I’ve gone in such a short time with all of you. I did not walk into this challenge with the expectation of making new friends, yet I have.
