You are my child. I longed for you and counted the days until you would arrive. You are here now and have been for some time. The earlier years were easy as I could keep you under my wings and protect you. I want to keep those wings over you but you are beating against them with your own. The time has come for me to lift mine and allow you to spread yours. I have done my best, taught you what you needed to know. You claim you have listened and learned, but will you adhere? That remains to be seen. I have to trust that you will. Spread your wings and fly!
