In response to Helene’s What do you see weekly challenge, to write a post the pic prompt.
The tiny feet caper merrily
walks on the path of life
enjoying the wondrous sight
with curiosity and awe,
discovers boundless treasures
falters, learns and assimilates
savoring the magic of nature
rearing to hold infinity in his palms,
his sentinels grab him, to cast him into a mold
burden his tender shoulders with a load too heavy
bundle him on an assembly line
stamp him with fear and anxiety
confine his growth within the societal norms
rob him of his innocence, shred his soul,
churn out an end product – a successful living robot!
