Wise One

This morning I made a young girl cry
Forgetting for a moment how pure
How simple is a child's mind.

A thing said teasingly is taken to heart
The mindless words heard as spoken—
"Sick girls don't hang upside down."

Well, of course, they do
And this one just had.

And this one—a wisdom guide—
Had just made the wiser one cry.


  1. This poem touched me, thanks. I think it's a blessing that we can allow ourselves to be instructed by the wise of any age. Peace.
