Back in April, I decided to take part in a 30-day poetry challenge to honor National Poetry Month. I had to write an original poem for each day in April and post it to the Poetic Asides site. Here is a poem I wrote for my son Jacob.
No one can tell me how it happened.
This technical difficulty in your brain.
No one can point a finger or prove anything.
You are just one of those people that I didn’t know I needed in my life, but now I can’t function without.
You are my computer kid with the brain glitch, nicely tucked away inside your hard drive.
And here I am, so thankful that you are a MAC and not a PC because you are strong and capable, and not easily broken.
I may not know what makes you tic, but I do know that whatever it is, it’s perfectly you and I would have you no other way.
