Poem: Blood and Water

You have that look in your eye
The tension, the fear
The readiness for the blow
You’re stressed, on edge
A big burden for a small one to carry
You have the ache in your legs
From all the walking on egg shells
You love and you loathe
Need to run but stay close
You don’t have a choice
Blood being thicker than water
The tie you cannot unbind
