You question me
causing insecurities of who he is
or what he can do.
The statistical process you will go through to show-
how he rates.
What you didn’t ask was;
Do you share moments?
Does he get it?
So vague and objective, yes-
but who are you?
Running, jumping, using simple phrases.
What about unspoken understanding and-
tantrums when he’s tired or anxious?
I do that too.
Am I “ok”?
I know you’re only trying to help-
you hurt my feelings.
I can’t wait to go home,
play Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
and eat animal crackers with my son.
You won’t be there.
