National Poetry Month, Day 8

Submitted by Mel Clifford

When I am worried I cannot write

I think and worry about the kids each night

Yet so young and they think they are old

Big enough not to do what they are told

With each year they become so big

Always wanting to do their own gig

As a parent they will never know

How difficult it is to let them go

Why do you worry in this day and age

Each day they grow exploring another stage

Yet I worry all the time

Because I want to protect them as they are mine

So when does this pain go away or awful fright

That something may happen to them one night

When I was young I was just the same

So let them go to play life’s game
