twitter650e587When tiny babes hold in their hands
A fraction of what they see you glory in
Does your heart move to fill their cups
Or you only flaunt before them your rich glasses
Giving their attention to your phones
Watching without care as they hope for help
Hoping in anguish that you’ll anoint their heads
As an ancestor once anointed yours
Does your body ignore your brain’s message
To sate their consuming hunger
Or do you rise to your feet convinced
That they deserve happiness too?

  1. Certainly parenthood has never had two sides than give sacrificially
    Give for the tiny baby’s sake and and take not for selfishness of reason.
