Don’t Rock the Children

Don’t Rock the Children

Ruth V. Mostrales

 

Don’t rock the children

In cradles of lies —

their slumber is certain,

but their future Dies.

 

Don’t belittle the children

or steal their spirit,

for a cocoon left alone

fulfills its promise.

 

What a dreadful future to

await with fear, if we

disregard the prospect

while the seeds are here!

 

Don’t rock the children

In cradles of lies —

their slumber is certain,

but our future Dies.
