How special to be loved so much
that from the air to land
a parent frowns concernedly
at lifeís tumultuous ways
that tosses wisdom to the wolves
and feeds deep empathy
into the jaws of lions.

This is my life!  I stand unmoved
but maybe Iím a fool
for dispensing my inheritance
before itís even used.

And guilty, I am guilty,
of a silent "tut, tut-tut";
what can a mother/father know
of what I learnt so long ago
and then, of course, forgot?

But wisdom comes to fools
and love outlines empathy
when the feel of one unseen
strips the ego clean
and bares the heart and soul
of what weíve always been.

To feel if not to see
and act accordingly
the manner and the means
of laughter for the free
but when will they celebrate
the coming out of me?

"But wisdom comes to fools
and love outlines empathy '

this was good, reminds me of my daughter and myself right now.

You are only a fool if you don't live life.
