Child (Poem)

He’s a child,

He’s struggling with life,

Poor child,

It’s sad to see a child struggle with life,

Why does life also have to be hard on a child?

 

He’s trying to decide if he should be good or bad,

The bad tempts him when he feels he can’t handle life,

Must do my best to pull him away from the bad,

It’s constant work trying to rescue him from the bad life,

It isn’t easy to pull him away from the bad.

 

Trying to find a way to tempt him with the good,

Must work hard to make the good path better,

Yet it feels like a countdown is telling me to hurry or he won’t choose good,

Still my own busy schedule doesn’t stop me from trying to help him see that the good is better,

I’ll regret it if I gave up on him knowing that I could’ve done something to help him be good.
