    #30 Untitled NaPoWriMo


    Through eyes of a child
    yearns nurturing
    desperately aches for ordinary days
    breakfast table
    a kiss before school
    bedtime stories
    hosted by evenings
    mundane reminders
    to brush your teeth
    routines by the millions

    Mother’s trust
    long erased by demons
    resurrect from depths
    unexplored by her
    the unresolved of the mother
    impacts the child
    pursued by hairbrush looks
    and belted threats
    nails on a blackboard
    cringe from gut to ear
    screech a vodka halo
    slide away and disappear

    Winding road of deep hill plunges
    black ice, potholes and gravel skids
    sabotage the drive through life
    no warnings of detours, delays or floods

    The eyes of a child
    invite comforting words
    mundane routines
    and ordinary days

    You did it, 30 poems!

    And then the poem, won't critique, just want to say that it is so true. I would have given anything to have mundane routines and ordinary days.
    Except perhaps that I probably wouldn't have become a poet
