once upon a time

Walking,  talking, laughing, crying... loving

All the emotions that make up a life

are aroused  when a child is born.

One time a special child was born who

 would change how we think.


That child, the persona of all children

Imbued in him, reached out to embrace

humanity as we walked, talked, laughed and cried.

We are forever in debt to that star in time.

One act of love, besmirshed by man’s inhumanity


But children, being resilient in love took mankind

by the hand and led him into forever knowing

How to love. No matter where we are, or how much

We are taught to disregard that special child

all we need do is engage in loving and giving,

to achieve the humanity of a special child.
