All The Little Children

Small and mighty

The product of a love that will never die

Note how they are easy to overlook

Strong but fragile, resilient but breakable

The seeds of your heart left to run wild

Let them, before the wildness is banished

Rearing is much easier when you threaten the unavoidable

Mothers know that endless loss is the only criteria for parenting

Fathers know the love will always be unrequited

And all the parents learned about the small, devastating hours

Spent wiping tears while spilling them in synchronicity

Parental allusion for their little people is completely fictitious

We are all blind to the truths

Doomed only seeing the love they carry away from our hearts

As they beat outside of us
