Inner Child

An infant.....born...
to family torn..
by tragedy....the dad....
with polio, near dead...
the mom, alone,
away from home...
finally, all came
together, father lame...
mom preoccupied...
the infant cried...
“Please, love me, dear
and hold me near....”

A babe....now one...
learning.... having fun
with detached dad,
a loving lad...
and doting mom
to keep him calm....
Yet, what he needs...
attention feeds...
for when he cries,
his father tries
to hush the sound
with swats around...
And so he learned,
this lesson ...
