Live through this



"It is infinitely easier to build a child than repair an adult."
--author unknown


take it scalding
take it hot
take it till it
hurts to squat.
a daily ass-beating;
that'll do
take it till u're
black & blue


take a beating
take it rough
take till you've
had enough
take all the above
but don't shed a tear
there'll be plenty plenty plenty plenty more
throughout the coming years.

take all the above
and seal it with a kiss:
God bless you
if you can love through this

Broken,  by   Alieux Casey for The Xande   (written in 1974)

(and I survived, barely)


Happy Father's Day,
