Contentment and Delight

Delight on the face of a child

aged eleven whose anger and anxiety overwhelm

She is content today at the session’s end

Tears and fears surround her years

An unafraid listening ear

to calm

to contain

to affirm

the person hurting within

She’s seen too much

relationships exploding

herself imploding

her self-care lacking

She comes in despair



Help given

The child breathes

and life feels better

Every day

a little better.
