Sometimes I worry you are the only thing I have done right
Then I worry that is too much pressure for any one person
It is not fair to pin your wings with my loving clinging arms
When you must be light as a feather to catch the wind
So I throw up my wrist to launch you to the sun
Aching heart anchoring me to earth

“It is not fair to pin your wings with my loving clinging arms”
This line perfectly captures the dichotomy of teaching freedom and the desire to keep loved ones safe.<3
Lovely and powerful poem!
