#30DaysChallenge - Day 5 -- Poem

You

I'm holding on to the knowledge that I am right
I feel your anger building, frustration burning through your veins
I dodge the punch, the kick connects,
Training from careers gone by kicks in,
I deflect, restrain and wait...
I wait for you to be you again, 
For the frustrated anger to pass
And for you to hear me
And to understand why I said "no"

All the while my heart breaks,
Not because I'm embarrassed that we're in public,
Not because you look too old to be doing this, 
But because I love you and sometimes I don't recognise you.
