Cerebral palsy

20140616-015028-6628224.jpg

There’s things
You can’t shake
Feelings
You can’t break
A sister
A child
Seizing in your arms
When she’s
Little
I remember
Your first steps
On Christmas
You reaching out for the tree
You’ve struggled
No
Fought
Your whole life
For your place
Your voice
To break free
I remember
Sitting beside you
And explaining things
Your brother
Moving out
Getting married

I will always
Be there
Explaining
Reading
Drawing
When you like
Boys
And they
Do bullshit
Things
I’ll be there

It’s just
The idea
This idea
Of you drawing up
Your being locked
Within yourself
You
Being put in a cage
After fighting so hard
To break free
To express
That breaks me
But I will
Be there
I saw it when I was
Little
I’ve seen it
Before
This is yours
And I will be there
Again
And again
Again
Once more
