Gloom

I am worried by my niece’s

black moods. Then I tell myself

she’s just an angsty teenager,

who’s had a very bad ride.

I can make her better.

I need to give her room,

in which to work through

things. The young can rebound

wonderfully. My nephews

have processed events more simply,

I don’t fret for them. But

she is a complicated girl,

prone to gloom.

I must be vigilant.
