WHEN I GROW UP?

I have been known to allow my inner child to show
Usually prompting the question
When are you going to grow up

I think a more important question is
What do I want to be when I grow up
If you ask me after the evening news…
Blind, Deaf, and Dumb

Blind
So I can’t see the disappointment
In the faces of the young
And on the hearts of the old

Deaf
To the cries of the hungry
Empty stomachs and minds
Wanting complete fulfillment

Dumb
Understanding nothing
Feeling no pity
Empathising with no-one

But alas I will never be these things

For this blessing I am silently thankful
