Unfit

5 Aug

I can rock him to sleep

Dry his tears

Give him a bath

Feed him his dinner.

I can teach him patience

Love

Acceptance.

Read stories to him

Walk him in his stroller

Play with his toys

Watch his favorite show.

Show him strength

Compassion

Courage.

I did not realize my impairments made me half a person,

Unfit to love, unfit to provide.

We may not climb Mount Everest together

But we can still move mountains,

And no one can ever take that from us.
