Is It Too Much to Ask? – Written Monday 18th January 2021 (Aged 45)

Is It Too Much to Ask

parents build love love
for their children
out of the building blocks –
they have
but what if –
their parents do not –
build love –
out of the building blocks –
they had

parents build love
for their children
out of the things –
they have –
but what if they do not –
have the things they need
the building blocks
which help us feed

parents build love
for their children
or perhaps –
they do not
adulthood jangle jangles
with pieces rarely forgot
