For the Children

I look down,
See myself
Who will he be,
He has my hands.

See myself
Looking back
He has my hands
Will he be like me?

Looking back
I have my regrets
Will he be like me?
I want to help him,

I have my regrets,
Can he avoid my mistakes?
I want to help him
Be more than me.

Can he avoid my mistakes,
Be more than me?
I look down.
Who will he be?

Thanks to Write With Pictures for the inspiration.

  1. Enjoyed this! Although the pattern is clear, it is a form I cannot identify, which bugs me to no end. I will drop in again to read and explore.

  2. oh duh, I should have recognized that! I’ve written using this form as well, but I just couldn’t place the line arrangement when I read yours! I am looking forward to exploring your other posts when I get a chance. Thanks for the reply.
