To be Brave


in a new world

For you just open your eyes

And everything is new to you.

The person holding you for first time

Has such kind and loving eyes.

As they stare down at you, and you have to be brave and stare into those

Eyes and entrust yourself to them for as long as they will have you.

And as time goes on you realize this person is called mommy and mother and maybe

There is a daddy or dad.

And they are in charge but you soon realize you can wrap them around your finger

When you’re young and the first-born or the only child.

And as you grow maybe you begin to want to brave this new world on your own

Even when you’re not ready, just to know you don’t have to be bosses around to

Make it on your own.

But sometimes you can still be brave in new things and,still ask for help from

The hands that always been there to pick you back up when you fall.
