Aspire to inspire

I nurture and protect
My little one with care,
I ensure right things and
thought to others he spare.
While I cocoon him today,
From the happenings away,
I stop and pause and wonder,
How will I keep horror at bay?
The big bad world, I caution,
Will set out to get him,
While mountains, he scales,
And oceans he swims.
Hurt and disappointment,
With love, I can embalm,
Nightmares and torture,
Disturbs what little of calm.
I equip him well, I try,
To face the world with élan,
Everyone’s qualms to defy.
To be the human, he can.
