a mom getting sober
while her kids watch
her reaction
her attitude
her outlook
on life

can they trust her

will she yell
will she cuss and slam doors
they watch
they listen
they learn
about sobriety

if she lives out loud

they learn about
second chances
different roads
a new future

slowly she gains trust
slowly they let go
of being the parent
which they’d done for so long

slowly they give in
to her love
to His love
to their love
and life is reborn
every day
