Tomorrows

Your angry voice tells me
you are tired, tired not just
physically from the drain of
responsibilities, but from feeling
forced to continue to trod the
same burdensome path—
A path that steepens as the
years close in and you feel you 
must stretch yourself beyond
the point of knowing how far.
I hear desperation in your 
angry voice, and I see that 
little boy who stifles his
cries to act like a man in
a world that has no room
for the dreams of a child or
for the dreams of a tired man.
It is easier to let your angry voice
speak to tell me these things.

    Funny Connie, I just posted Yesterdays. The child within seems to always need recognition and being an adult dealing with all that goes onfinds us needing a less complicated time. Beautifully written with so much meaning.Love, Elizabeth

    Connie, I can relate to this one so much. Some days my own son gets this way but I am so proud of him for holding up in this tough world. I really enjoyed seeing this one. Hope your eyes are OK? Luv, Andrea (will be doing Constanza contest when I can)!
