Someday you’ll understand
why I couldn’t stay.
Someday this pain you feel now
will just make you laugh.
Someday you’ll find yourself
standing in my shoes
and you’ll remember ‘someday’
just like I told you.

That someday is now.
It arrived here today.
I stand where you stood
just as you said I would,
but you said I’d be laughing,
as if that pain were good.
I get where you came from,
but I can’t say I understand
how you could leave your child
to run to the arms of a man.

Prompt: Someday
