those difficult times in your life that change who you are

The Worst of Times

The smile removed from a child when their parent shuns them.

The hope ripped from your soul when you are told what you cannot do.

The break of a heart when his eyes move to others.

The deception of a trusted friend that changes you.

The raising of a voice and sarcasm that come from a disenchanted love; that leave you breathless.

The loss of a childhood sweetheart as you read his wedding announcement to another.

The moment you realize your child no longer wants to hold your hand.

These are the moments that change who you are.
