BAD NEWS

by Joan Serratelli

How much more
can she take?
She 's fragile
she's going to
break

I would not
presume to tell her
what to do

With every fiber
of my being
I wanted things to
work out
I never considered
that things would go
so dreadfully wrong

LIFE is far
from fair

I'm worried
out of my mind

Will this have a
happy endong?

She is my daughter
Unfortunately,
she has my luck

We cannot truly plan, because we do not understand the future--but this is not necessarily bad news. We could plan while bearing in mind our limitations. It just takes guts...something we only sometimes have.
