Do not dive into adult hood

Like an explosion

Ripping apart the seams of family fabric

Do not seize your independence

With fire and battering hail

Rather let it fold upon you without effort

A gentle blanket that slowly gathers warmth

Amass the wisdom born of mistakes once made

And the years will fall upon you

As you sow the seeds of a future yet unborn.

For when the thunder clouds roll back,

And you stand alone in the world of your own making

The anxious hand that reaches for assurance

Is still the little hand I held in mine.

That is a wonderful poem, Katarina. "Ripping apart the seams of family fabric" Indeed, and how that fabric has to be sew back together by loving hands! The patchwork quilt of a life lived.
