again. we've moved from one dump to another.
he will promise this will be the last move until we can afford better.
he will promise he won't drink and smoke his paychecks.
again. i will swear this is the last chance i'm giving him.
i will swear that i will not raise my Child to live like this.
i will try to clean while the Baby sleeps.
i will try not to cry as i scrub away the grime.
again. i will salvage what i can from what was left behind.
I will salvage what's left of my pride.
i will wonder if we'll stay long enough to make it worth the effort.
I will wonder about the history of this house. who lived here. who loved here.
again. i will form a story to tell our families about the move. and why.
I will form a plan in my mind, a plan of purchasing and renovating.
Again. I will begin to Hope.
I will begin to Dream.
Maybe this time my Hope and my Dream won't be crushed.
