SOLC 13 of 31: Who’s Child Is this?

Who’s Child Is This? (inspired by caroline524)

Who’s child is this 

who is

sassy

disrespectful

selfish?

               Not mine.

Who’s child is this

who is

creative

confident

doesn’t like to dance

            that would be mine.

Who’s child is this

who is

determined

independent

persistent?

            Must be mine.

Who’s child is this?

She’s mine. 

Frustrating, Exhausting,

Interesting and Inspiring.

She’s mine.

    So many of those tough traits have their positives – sassy can be strong and assertive, etc. Love your poem – you’ve captured the many facets of our much-loved youngsters!

    Many of those qualities sound like leadership qualities to me.
