soon the tears will stop

oh beautiful child

a month out

brand new human

how I wish I could

protect you from

the harms your mother

and father will pass along

the twisted quirks

of personality fixing your way ahead

but soon you will be fed

and burped and put down for the night

and the tears have stopped

the child sleeps preparing for another hunger
