The Child Is A Symbol Of What Tomorrow Shall Be - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the child
is a symbol of
what tomorrow
shall be

what you say
is written in stone
tablets
like the ten
commandments

how you act
is embedded in his
skull
and will never be
forgotten

the child is a clean
sheet of paper
what you write
stays forever

so mom and dad
and who the powers
that here be

be gentle, be careful,
be decent, be loving

your empire is here
your future is built.
