The homely curse

Bearing the ache in her ill-fated leg throughout the day in college, she came home and slept.

Father to mother – Remember my words, “She won’t even pass the easiest of exams. A serious student never sleeps so early.”

Hearing the whispers,  she rolled over the bed and shut her eyelids.

Who needs the curse of the enemies, when her own parents were the ones to spell it.

  1. Unfortunately becoming a parent doesn’t mean you instantly become perfect; mistakes are made. Hopefully, though, lessons are learned and growing and healing happens – if not this within this generation, then definitely with the next one!
