Oh, child –

there’s a world beyond this

beyond what we have seen

beyond cobblestone steps

and the new religions

Oh, child –

there is more

than the myth we’ve been fed

something older

than governments

and deeper than these roots

Oh, child –

hold fast your dreams

and travel far

beyond the limits

others will hand you

Oh, child –

you are meant for so much more

than the philosophy

others have chosen

the boogeyman they created

to justify their hate

Oh, child –

you are more

than the dreams I hold

more than the hopes

I whisper over you

you are the hero

the fork in the road

the future, clear-eyed

without fear – Caroline A. Slee
