Cookie Jar

Cookie Jar
Form: Free Verse

I taught you to stand
on your own two feet
to face the world with
your head held high
yet always you knew
I would be beside you
when life went the wrong way
and not how you had it planned
instead bending it
turning it around
making it fit your own box
and it is with pride in my heart
love in my soul
I know
there is no curve you can’t make it round
and I hear your tears
and I feel your pain
yet we both know there will be laughter again
for you are my son
a tough cookie
from a tough cookie jar
