Despite Your Issues

Baby Pine Cones

We were all just
a little bit young
and we are still all
a little bit young.
We grew from the palms
of our parents
where we could feel their
wedding bands on their
left hands.
Some of us couldn’t
and that’s okay
because we were loved
as if we were the only
grain of sand in the hourglass
that mattered
of the thousands
maybe millions
that had already passed.
Was it worth all the pain
for us to grow up fighting
against the tide?
There are still moments
where you wish
you could climb back into
those arms and
be rocked to sleep at night.
Don’t be afraid to admit it.
