"I’m not EMO! I’m Poetic!"

My son, two days into middle school, says to me tonight–“I’m not EMO. I’m poetic.”
I know where he gets his dramatics from. Both sides of his family have their many moments. But that confidence in his dramatic flair I only dreamt of when I was his age–hormones raging and every family dinner ending with me shouting, “NO BODY LISTENS TO ME!” Is that why I write?

  1. Whatever the reason, I'm glad you do!!! I think the reason changes every moment. It's so complicated. A cop out, yes. We just write. Did you notice on my FB page I wrote so just write already? Ali notices everything. He's poetic for sure.
