Turning into my Mother

In by Gracie on November 4, 2019 at 11:09 am

I feel like I am starting to look more and more like my mother.
We act alike in some ways. It usually comes out in moments of stress.
A week ago, I scolded someone, telling them to “put that down!” when they reached for a tube of cinnamon rolls I had plans for.
In their embarrassment, I saw myself.

Young and in the way.

Quickly dropping the cylinder like a hot potato and running to safety.
Reflected, I saw my mother.
Fiery, with fleeting anger that I explain away as protection.
I look a lot like her in these moments.
