by Uriel Tovar

Let us look at the world as a whole
And see how children have increased in size and strength
Learning that to be fed
They must whine
Cry and kick
And to an extent
Resort to violence

This is our burden
Because this weight is not
For them to bear
Oh how our shoulders
Have become one
With this cumbersome yoke
How spines have compounded
Under weight and force

And what if our wills turn to the other
And our grips become weak and lax
Can we then be like those on the floor
Avoiding the pressures distributing upon?
We will become crushed upon our place
Forgotten forever and left as
A little more than dust
To be cleaned off of the privileged few.
