Ky, it could be worse

these photographs are not what i want.
they should be better.
i should be better.

and it's tempting to bend under the whisper of,
"see? you suck."

instead i think of the twins this morning,
sitting across the table, arms intwined
faces pressed against each other -
his eyes green, and his brown.

"No, daddy doesn't live at home,"
they say, and i think divorce.
"Daddy lives in heaven."

wow. you're six.

Kylee, your life...could be worse.
photographs can be improved, can be changed.

Some things can't.

  1. So true. Thanks for the reminder. And I'm sure your photographs weren't as bad as you say they are. Remember, you are your own's worst critic.
