Falling cradle

Wrap them in wool

and soothing cotton.

Gently lift with supple fingers

and lay them on silken sheets.

Wrap them in safety

and guard every step.

Gently ensure the path is broad

and lay them down in luxuries lap.

Wrap them in self

and public acceptance.

Gently erode all sense and reasoning

and drop them at the cross of secular opinion.

Wrap them in irrelevance

and lay them bare at the mercy of the relevant.

Baby, Sleeping Baby, Baby Girl

“You will never find the real truth among people that are insecure or have egos to protect. Truth over time becomes either guarded or twisted as their perspective changes; it changes with the seasons of their shame, love, hope or pride.”
― Shannon L. Alder
