IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT SAYS INSIDE.

I often wonder what my son sees
when  he looks outside of his world
beyond the familiar walls of his home
like peering within a rose, unfurled

Does he see how much I fear for him,
of what awaits him out there
where people don’t understand him
where judgment awaits him, so unaware

But I can only do the best I can
to shelter him from my own fears
maybe all this despair is unfounded
as I’ll watch him grow through the years
