On Day One

Written by bluZ (copyright 4-19-2016)



You were not here yesterday,

But you are here today,

Lying so silently

In a small Lucite tray.

 

Your face all scrunched up,

On your head a knit hat

Makes you look like an elf

Or some creature like that.

 

Chubby cherry cheeks

Subtly move as you breathe.

I could watch you all night;

Really don’t want to leave.

 

As I stand and observe

My first newborn son,

My mind starts to race.

Questions have begun

On this your day one.

 

Will you succumb

to the false gods

of that glow beneath your fingers?

 

On whose tortured screens

There’s nothing redeeming,

Only flaming and litter,

And folks who are bitter.

 

Will you die as a soldier

In a faraway war?

Away from your family

And your being’s core?

 

Will you marry the girl

Who lives just next door,

Or find for your mate

Someone chosen by fate?

 

You have no idea

‘Bout the things that I fear

For you on day one,

Before you’ve begun.

 

But I’ll always be here,

Your sword and your horse,

Until the tables are turned

And you become boss.

 

That’ll happen in time;

There’s no fighting that.

But it won’t be tomorrow.

How’s it that I know?

Just look at your hat.
