Care is all he yearns for,
Hope indeed he seeks;
Illness may befall him,
Love shall give him will;
Darkness comes asunder,
Rock him till he sleeps;
Every child deserves this,
Not abuse- I plead.
Break away- oh little one,
Unto the sky, to see the world;
Taste the pollens on rose buds,
Trust in your wings, to take you there;
Embrace the beauty you’ve become,
Rock your wings, unto safe haven;
Follow the path less taken,
Lest you be caught- in a web of sly;
You trust in your wings, you’ll make it.
