letting go

Why doesn’t the umbilical cord

Stretch out slow, unravel itself,

Let the child go?

I think its the parents who are

Really slow

At letting go–

Perhaps it seems they can live out their dreams-

Through the child- relive their lives so!

And that is why the cord needs to be

Cleanly, sharply, — irrevocably cut!
