59.Growing up

When will you start walking
So as to trample someone,
When will you start speaking
To be able to abuse someone?

When will you gain strength
To hit someone really hard,
When will the smile on your face
Give way to a permanent frown?

When will you start hurting others,
When will you become vindictive,
When will you shed your innocence,
When will your softness vanish?

You are so small and defenceless,
My son, when will you grow up?

It is a pleasure seeing a child grow.No other experience can be as good.

Sad. Seeing a child grow should raise hope in a human mind. When we start thinking negatively, it means there is something drastically wrong with our society.
You have captured the sorry state of human behaviour so well. Very good.
