June 12, 2012 Shannon Family Reunion

Letting Go

I remember looking at the picture of devil’s bridge,
people walking out with sheer drops all around.
Nevertheless we hiked/ climbed up.
My heart hammered in my stomach.
My legs quivered.
It wasn’t as bad standing on it
as it was seeing someone else stand on it.
No place for mothers and their children.
I turned my back on my grown son and descended.
