This is a big day

It is a pain that is endless

and I have been taught that it is the enemy,

So I am unfamiliar and thus afraid

and in a denying way.

Which gives me great hope

Which gives me great hope

The nature of this world

and of raising children is

to teach unfamiliar as fear

and protect one and all from the

endless pain

So unfamiliar

and unfamiliar is so bad, so bad

we are taught.

Perhaps the key to human joy

and peace is not so far out of our grasp.

Maybe it’s about being curious

which we all can do

and which we all did, at one time.

Curious about what is not familiar.
