Change Of Time

I see the world through new eyes tonight.  I lift the veil and look to the stars.  Beyond fear and loneliness, into the heavens.  I am but a speck in the vastness of it all.  Just one tiny light among the infinite.  Sometimes we shine bright, but all lights must dim.  It began with a dream, shared with two.  Of a mountain and what lay within.  A future to avoid at all costs.  A remembrance for the fallen and a cry for justice.  I didn’t know what it meant for the longest time.  The embodiment of what I had to become.  I fought so hard to stop that dream, more than I had for anything in my life.  I fought to save him.  But I couldn’t.  The sands of time made sure he was not a part of what I tried to save.  Maybe one day I will see it as a protection, as some grand plan designed to keep him safe from harm.  But for now, a tear falls down my cheek as I drift helpless into the night.  I pray it is not too late, that I can find it.  Not what I thought I wanted, but what I must give.  I didn’t seek a truth to heal but to destroy.  Did any of it matter?  In the end, I walk alone, more than ever before.  With no direction, I walk.  Away.  A farewell of sorts.


White shores, and beyond, a far green country and a swift sunrise.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
