Day 27 – Creed

I will always make excuses for children
for they bear the least of all blame
and I will always expect more of myself
because I’ve had more time to know better
The ones who sell the future and seal
their place in everlasting shame
are those who expect more from a child
than the dignity they give
And let me die before I let you
carry the world
while I still have strength left
to carry you
