- Thin Grey Line -

Each day I walk a thin gray line with no beginning and no end, on one side I'm the parent while on the other I'm a friend.

This thin gray line is fragile and occasionally will bust, with stress from one side being a parent while on the other keeping trust.

Although this line cannot be seen nor easily defined, it's in this place where parenting and friendship together are combined.

Its hard to balance this thin gray line without ever being tossed, when you stray too far from one side the other becomes lost.

After years of trial and error I have realized in the end, that respect and trust has doubled from being both a parent and a friend.
