I Continue

I have to stay with my feelings.

My head tells me let go.

Move on.

Everyone makes their own choices.

And then I hear the child’s voice

in the man

as he calls me Mom

and my eyes fill.

Being a human being

is a lot harder

than you might think

if you were looking

at us from afar.

I write, I breathe,

I continue.

I hope he makes it through

a year in Kabul.
