Mark,

I wonder if the answer is in your signature line.

Much love,
Larry

Larry,

I wonder the same thing. And it scares me if it's true.

It's weird - this is one of the few things I've ever written that actually can bring tears. Actually - it's one of the few things PERIOD that can evoke tears from me.

That must be very important then - and worth thinking about too. That is, do we fear to be our own one true hope because we think we will fail, or because we don't want to look inside ourselves for the resources we need.

Back to the issue of "familiar seems safe", perhaps?

Much love,
Larry

This was written by little Mark. And I am petrified by the thought that I will fail him. Or already have...

You won't fail him, Mark. His needs are those of an innocent child, and as you already say in your poem the gate is open. All he needs is a strong hand to take his, and for this I think all we need to do is to acknowledge the strength we already have but fear to use.

Much love,
Larry
