Fear Scars

My son,
you are my heart
out walking in the hard world.

My belle-fille,
you are also now my heart
as you carry the heart of my son.

My petit-fils,
you are the greatness
of the love in both of them.

I carry
scar tissue
from violence of fear–
your part of this hard world
so far from mine
shudders today
with mine.

So what do you think?
