    Knowing the context, this both hurts and offers reassurance.

    I hope she reads it.

    Just happend to have recently read a long article in the London Times about how forms of modern parenting that stress all forms of 'risk avoidance' is actually harming the children. Unable to explore on their own and learn by stubbing their toe, they grow up to equate fear with dispair. Fear motivates and lets you know where your current limitations are, and that they can be expanded. If they couldn't we'd still be banging two rocks together. Another good poem I fear.

    I hang from my balls over a ledge
    Luckily they taught to me love all
    And not hate in college
    ladies were born empty headed
    from men had to take knowledge
    yes racism exists in poetry
    I can say firmly and not just allege
