The Labor of Ages

nothing sits as
squarely upon
our shoulders
as parenthood

the impossible
task of Sisyphus
seemingly more
rewarding and
less tiring

this boulder the
certainty that if
we were to simply
let go the result
may differ little

but still we labor on
if only to share the
view from the top
for a heartbeat
before slipping
and starting again
