Today was lame, and now it will be great! I needed something to keep me on my study grind all weekend, and I guess getting to see them #1 orioles will do the trick 💕 no worries on this Friday night, that’s Saturday mornings problem.
It is the curse of children born first:
playing nurse to the ones running wild,
expected to sweep up and straighten,
to counter the mad
with the mild.
They laugh at me sitting alone,
every one of them reeking of rage
not one ‘thank you’ for the unlocked door
when they come stumbling home.
I’ve had to put out
too many blazing hearts —
I have the shiny marks to prove it,
and a wall lined with the ashes
of the dreams I had at birth.
There is no salve on earth
for girls whose houses are on fire.
