Coincidentally, this is the second 44-word poem I have written this week. The other was for the dVerse quadrille challenge. Maybe it’s an omen.
Mom & Me
Mother always pointed out my difficult side;
that contrarian in me, not the exact opposite of good,
more like one who disobeyed, who pushed back,
because I saw life through my own eyes.
Today, I both regret and rejoice my
yin and yang personality.
Look at yourself both ways.
You may not be who you think you are.
Mind the gaps while searching for self.
While I enjoy this musical duet, I am struck by the irony.
