Just Between Us…

I have a secret fantasy
Or maybe it’s a fear
One day it will all be too much
It escalates each year

Responsibilities and this
Oppressive weight I feel
To snap under the strain of it
It does hold some appeal

Surrender, wave a tiny flag
Cry uncle, beg enough
Alas, if I succumb to this
I’d be admitting I’m not tough

A paragon of parenthood
It is the part I play
Those I birthed are watching
I set a precedent each day

So, I’ll keep this on the down low
Remaining ever reticent
Happy, helpful, calm, concerned
Is all that’s evident… (I hope)
