Growing Pains

Growing Pains
by Kelly F. Barr

Your two big brothers are grown;
And you felt they left you alone.
However, you still have Mom and Dad–
This new normal made you sad and mad.

The first year was tough
Because you didn’t think Mom and Dad were enough.
You rebelled;
Your mother’s frustration swelled.

But we managed to survive,
And now our second year has arrived.
You have learned time with Mom and Dad can be fun
And today a new family tradition has begun.

You’re learning that trailing a bit behind
May have blessings of an unexpected kind.
Now maybe you can look forward to each coming year
With true hopefulness, contentment and cheer.
