100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #10

Hours and hours wasted.
I simply don’t believe it. Hours I have spent, nurturing, tending, caring.  All for what?  It’s nothing short of a travesty.  They looked beautiful, tumbling like brightly coloured hair.  The different colours blending like an earthbound rainbow.  I cherished my little ones, spared them from pests and diseases, never letting them go hungry.  I placed them with love, ensuring each had enough room to grow, to reach their potential.  I used all my skill, my years of experience, I gave them my all. All for this, my babies chopped and shorn, to make a living statue.
