What will your future bring, you wonder

The yelling seems to always start late in the evening when you are in bed.

But not asleep.

You could hear it all, taking it in, learning from it, making it part of your reality for the future.

Would you build a future with bricks and mortar of shouts and pain?

Would you exist sharing love and kindness, forgiveness? 

You never talked about it in later years. Never shared it.

But you absorbed it all. Used it to form a home with caring.

Please, rise up inside, you promise yourself. Grow the awareness of right. 

Someday your peace will come.
