Screwed

screwed

Contemptuous sighs and lethal stink-eyes
Silent treatments that last for days
Their digits double, omnipotent
Our IQs fail by half, dotage
Teen years, an exhausting level
Of parenting purgatory
Still, I survive

The Trifecta challenge this week is: Survive [noun \ sər-ˈvīv\] 3: to continue to function or prosper despite : withstand
