you’ve got a deal

you’ll be

healthy in body
successful in profession
stable in domesticity
contributive to society
generous with family

happy.

to:

prove me wrong
show me up
show me how it
should have been done ~

a large price
for me to pay

but an even
larger benefit
for you

okay

you’ve got a deal

    1. Tell you what, even as the years passed and her lies got more and more outrageous, I kept myself from being sorry I had her. I still don’t believe in regrets ~ I believe everything happens for an intricate net of good reasons ~ but if I did, that’s something I’d change. Not the experience of motherhood, necessarily, but definitely the bloodline of the child.
