Connecting Knots


The pain you went through
When you had me

Now you have me
And you have pain

When I hurt
And

When you hurt
I feel pain

You created
A life cycle

From your own blood
From your own genes

In this cycle
I care for you

Not because I have to
But because I want to

You care for me
Not because you have to

But because you want to
We are connected

You and me
In ways that keep us bonded

Together
You made a knot

I am the knot
I will not let go

Because you are my mother
You have created me

A life cycle
I have learned from you

That will keep oncoming knots
Connected

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
