because I dressed him and he wanted to be like Dad

He was sportin’ Timberlands back then.
Only because I dressed him and he wanted to be like Dad.
So many things he does not know about me but he will come to his own.
One day passed the panes that give a glimpse of what his world is he will know that I was the best that I could be as I weathered my own storms I sheltered him.
The shards of the past will only last until you surpass the pain that the refrains could not retain within.

Sometimes we need to slow our flow

Sometimes we need to slow our flow.
A we go throughoughtthe we need to measure ourselves.

We may have to slow down our speech or actions in order to take in something else.

I will not chase you into your night for that is your journey

I feel the proof shall be the look he will be wearing. You see life’s popular demand has a way of fraying a man and I would have been gone…You see he heard my words but did not listen…so it is akin to throwing seeds of wisdom on stony ground and therefore no harvest to be found…he was betrayed by his inaction and the fractured prism of his world will fall and echo in his still heart.
My own heart would have been still and I had hoped to instill my words of a life I lived but now his distilled angst is his only refill.
One day when Mom passes you will inherit quite a bit of change but the only thing that will change that the prison you live in can be bigger/prettier than another brother’s.
I only have my words for they are the only currency I have they are how I share my life and to you, they are chump change.
May that anger leave your countenance as you look at the letter Y and see that you made the choice at the bifurcation and that I stayed the course.
I will not chase you into your night for that is your journey but I will one day be the dawn when you awaken.

Sunset in an Orange County NY parking lot while I waiting for a friend to take of some business.
Sometimes we ‘measure’ in seconds/minutes but other times emotions take over and time stands still.

Dating someone in  prison

“Visitation date” “Release date” “Probation date”
I get it Love is blind but time is finite.
