My Child by: Dr. Shefali

from her book, “Out of Control.”

My child isn’t my easel to paint on
Nor my diamond to polish
My child isn’t my trophy to share with the world
Nor my badge of honor
My child isn’t an idea, an expectation, or a fantasy
Nor my reflection or legacy
My child isn’t my puppet or a project
Nor my striving or desire

My Child is here to fumble, stumble, try, and cry
Learn and mess up
Fail and try again
Listen to the beat of a drum faint to our adult ears
And dance to a song that revels in freedom

My task is to step aside
Stay in inifinitre possibility
HEAL MY WOUNDS
FILL MY BUCKET
And LET MY CHILD FLY!
