  To My Son  

        I want to give a happy life
                        for my child.

I try to see the world as good

                so I can teach him

                                      an optimistic viewpoint.

        But it is hard not to be

scared of life
                                 on his behalf

                                             when the world is such a dangerous place.

        But if the only way I can

                                                      keep him safe
                                                                                    is to make him afraid

I think I haven't done

                                           him much of a favor.
