A Child's Poem


This is a poem I wrote today about a one-year-old girl at my church. She's on the verge of learning to walk, but her mom says she just doesn't seem to want to. I thought that maybe, once she tilts her head back and sees all of the wonders up there, she'll want to walk.



A crawling child,
Too scared to stand,
So oblivious to
What is above.


But soon, she'll yearn
For the blue skies,
The birds that are free,
And the shining stars.

She'll reach up
With her two small hands,
Grabbing for new discoveries,
And stand on her own.
