The Parent Lottery

Thank God for parents
Who can teach the difference
Between right and wrong

Brothers who conquer bottlecaps

I have started going
To the gym 
Yet 
I have yet 
To put on any weight 
My fingers 
Hurt 
At the thought 
Of having to open 
Another 
Small 
Masafi 
Z, open this for me

A Parent’s Love

Today I am grateful for

A parent’s warm love
Soft kisses on my forehead
Even as I sleep
