#Poetrychallenge – Circle of life

The death of a child

nature’s worst aberration

Quite impossible

to fully recover from

a broken circle of life

    1. Thank you, Diana. Sometimes I have panic attacks that I loss my Michael. There is mumps going around and the doctor has asked me to bring him in as they don’t know if his vaccination took due to his compromised immunity. I know he’ll be fine, but I still worry…

  1. I agree, Robbie. No parent should need to bury a child, but it’s too often true. It has happened a few times in my family. Today, very sadly, four children – three from one family and another a cousin – were mowed down by a drunk driver as they walked along a footpath going for ice cream. There were other children in the group who were also injured, some critically. A mother and father lost three of their six children in one blow by the stupidity of one irresponsible driver. So sad.
