Alisa Muniz Blanchard 2014
from here, the perspective
impresses wonder Family
why this path

as terse words
etch the morning air
and sweetness abandons
lingering hope for more
lingering hope for love

years and months of self-sacrifice
to nurture our demons
of our childhood trauma
in the love we give
to the lives we hold
and those we have lost
along the way

yet as eyes connect to mine
there is a reminder
most important experiments
will fail in the early stages
before becoming successful
