Child Wise

The child, even in the cradle
holds the keys to the man
he will become.

No matter the paths chosen
or ignored, even forgotten. No
matter the number of silver
moons viewed or avoided,

the child will always walk
deep inside the man. And
that man, if he is wise, will
cradle the child in his breast,

thereby knowing wonder,
magic, and the mysteries
of a life unfolding.
