Life is good! Life is inspirational!

A Child’s View

Give me a child’s view any day
Simplicity at best
Idealism untainted
Pureness that stands the test

And tell me where it will not go
What truths it will not yield
For children do not blow us up
Deprive the living fields

Children do not just suffocate
The riches that we see
Or zap the goodness of the world
Constrain autonomy

They don’t dictate autocratically
They don’t control, contrive
Nor stifle, choke, asphyxiate
But try to stay alive

No!  A child’s view is quite priceless
A gift just for the Earth
A treasure that innocently
Has power beyond their birth

  2. Wonderfully put and absolutely spot on, my friend 🙂
