Maybe Your Children Do “Get You” Even When You Think They Are Not Watching

/ May 26, 2019

It is interesting when your children do “get you” even when you think they are not watching. Although my son is not a writer, I did get his permission to share a poem he made for me. 

By Lisa Caprelli, with Words by Trey Solomon

“My son, Trey, is not a writer and even though I tell him many times, ‘Don’t you want to write a book? I can help you?’ he says no.  He is interested in the things he likes and you cannot sway him from that. Trey is a YouTuber with a successful channel called TreyJam.  He is great at many sports like basketball, football, soccer and street hockey.

She is a fighting spirit and no matter how many times she starts over she gets back up with a smile. She wonders whether her children are doing well. She hears the refrigerator beeping because I did not close it

She sees a vision of her future where her children have happy families and she is in a penthouse with her husband. She wants her children to succeed and will go to great measures for that to happen. She is Lisa Caprelli

She believes in improving herself always and that if she does good the universe will give back. She feels grateful because she was born into a poor family and has made it out of her struggle. She teaches and speaks about her struggle and shows people you can do anything with enough effort

She worries whether I have ate enough sometimes. She laments if she is the best version of herself. She is Lisa Caprelli

She understands that I sometimes am conflicted about things sometimes and will help me through these times

She claims that love will overcome many problems in life. She dreams of a future where she has enough time to travel the world and help those in need. She strives to become a great writer and painter. She hopes that everyone close to her is happy

She is my mom
