Innocent Soul

innocent soul 
blameless being 
just months old 
what are you seeing?
what do you hear? 
what can you do? 
all of their fear
will rest upon you 
all of their worry 
all of their strife 
will become your story 
will become your life 
all of their sorrow 
all of their guilt 
will be the tomorrow 
on which your life is built
forgive imperfection 
forget the mistakes
it’s time for reflection 
whatever it takes 
life rearranges 
put on the brakes
contemplate changes
consider the stakes 
no time to argue 
no time to contest
sometimes it’s hard 
to do what is best
