Weeds In My Garden

The weeds in my garden are overgrown. I cut and cut but they keep popping up, What’s the point of these pruning tools anymore? I did not know that they were growing, flourishing in hues of green, red and blue. What else is my garden not showing? I rolled up my shirt sleeves and thought…

Him: Ice

There he sat, the head of the family. Always silencing her, telling her that her thoughts are insignificant. “Shut up” being flung across the room without even thinking about it.   Is power what he wants?

Fandom Ethics
