My Life’s Pride

Daily writing prompt
What are you most proud of in your life?

Like the rising tide

I swell with pride

Able to pass the limits

Swelling over my laments

Inspiration comes

aspirations from

My children’s dreams

Their deviant schemes

Too smart for their own good

Too start where they should

Chutes and ladders

And they start at the latter

They are cunning

Beauty stunning

Sweet and sunny

Blunt and funny

I live to come from work

And watch them go berserk

Cheering and shouting

As the stairs I’m mounting

It is their joy I covet

I can’t help that I love it

I can not hide or shroud

Of my children I am proud
