Quadrille # 137: He Really Was A Rolling Stone


De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo, is hosting Quadrille Monday. We are told to write a poem of exactly 44 words, using the word stone. 

he was just a rolling stone
came and went without gathering
love or emotions
the scars in the children ran deep
his absence caused each of them
to fear entanglements
had he stopped to be in their lives
how different it could have been

  1. Fathers often underestimate how much they influence their children. They are so important. It’s why it’s so sad when they drop out of their children’s lives 😦

    1. It was painful to live through but I am OK with the fact that I kept my side of the street clean. I reached out while my grandma was alive, I would do anything for his mother, my beloved grandma.


  2. Remembering and writing this shows how you have healed over your childhood heartache. But it does not stop at childhood, it rides with us until we choose to change it, and you did. I am proud of you for taking the steps to heal your heart. You deserved better. ❤️
