Metamorphosis - Poem by Elmer Romulo Valdez

The frail child in the corner,
Soon transforms into a man,
The new master of the universe.

Don't suppress his laughter,
Or bury the ideas he counters,
Let him raise a fist in protest.

Let him show his self-worth,
In the little things attained,
Leave him to stand on his feet.

Instruct him a lesson or two,
Be it painful or hard to bear,
Pat his back and let his grow.

An Individual within the Mass!
