Ready

We have been hitting some bumps on the road to public school, but at home we are making great strides.  Lots of excitement here this week.  Coco has had open communication of the letter board with both Dad and Lilly this week.  Huge accomplishment!  

Coco told me this poem is about home.  I love that she feels this way about home.  It’s hard to keep this place a haven – to keep the stress of our battle for inclusion outside of this place.  It creeps in.  It’s hard not to get discouraged and feel defeated in the face of Coco’s challenges.  Thank God that Coco is ever the optimist.

READY

SANDY BEACHES CALL MY NAME

MEANDERING LANES LEAD ME HOME

YELLOW STARS ALIGHT MY WAY

TAKE MY BAG OR JUST LEAVE IT

NONE CALL ME LIAR THERE BELITTLE OR INSULT ME

GREEN THINGS ARE ALWAYS GROWING

A POT OF SOMETHING DELICIOUS ON THE STOVE

READY SO LONG ALWAYS CALLING ME BACK

HAVING SO LONGED FOR IT

NEEDING ITS PROTECTION

EVERY ROAD LEADS TO IT

TELL THE DESPERATE SOULS IM READY

THIS IS WHERE YOULL FIND ME

  1. You have been ready for a long time—It is taking the others a long time to catch up with you—but they will.
