Children

Today was the day she had dreaded since childhood

She stared at the prickly flowers. They were beautiful. They were rough. They were fiery yet gentle. They were like her mother. And, today was the day she had dreaded since childhood.

She put on her black dress. She grabbed a shawl and a hat. She held her son’s hand and looked down at his tiny body. One day, he might have this awful, dreaded feeling as well. We leave legacies behind. We leave feelings of mourning forever more. She had never wanted to feel this. But such was the cycle of life. She wiped her tears and headed out to face her greatest fear come true.
