The Blessing of Commas: A Poem

Children are like
commas,
I think.

They bring
pauses,
in a day of important things.

Little hands touch our face,
they clarify,
Love.

Making sense of the world:
a bird, a worm,
a friend.

They distill it all
and we have to ask,
what is important.

The broken sleep and all the time,
join our independent selves
to someone else.

Children are like
commas,
I think.

And how confusing is the world
without the punctuation
of Life

    It truly is important to pause for those commas because they are the actual life worth living.
