NaPoWriMo 2018-11 -- Day 11, a Bad days for Boys



The day he lost his room
a day to remember
'Twas to be expected
defer to new baby
A fun part of him changed
on the porch bed for him
 
Did not complain or cry
in this he had no voice
Wouldn't be the last time
only first of many
Last?  Sold his pickup truck
told his manhood goodbye

Ah, "everything passes" and "change is the only constant". Somewhat melancholy, but inevitable.

Giving up always has that side of reluctance. Nice emotions captured in your poem Jim

Much🌼love

In the south, the "summer porch" is a real thing! I'm sure the sacrifice was greatly appreciated
