Mother-Daughter Battles

The Prickly Barnacle

You prickly, tickly barnacle
Clinging to me as you push away
Tearing my flesh as you flail about
Sending me on a windswept wave
Of confusion and frustration


You prickly, tickly barnacle
Let’s rest here in this cove
You can hide in your crusty cave
And I’ll protect your softness


You prickly, tickly barnacle
Scrape me all you want
We both know you couldn’t live 
Without me


Relax, you little barnacle
Nature’s strongest adhesive
A mother’s love
Will never let you go
