Poem – Toddler

I can’t escape it

The screaming

The demands

The way you throw things with a smile

You keep me on edge

When I don’t hear you I get nervous

Then I usually find the destruction 

You created in the silence

I long for those sweet moments

Where you give hugs and kisses

But I always have to be on the ready

For even then you can change in an instant

How can something so small

Be so powerful

I am at your mercy

So please, please be gentle
