A Part of Living

it is just a part of living, child…
if we didn’t cry each morning and night
who would we be?

some do not even feel
so far as their own heart
why would you listen to the words
the names
that call you to deny,

deny them and you?

when we cared for the food we ate
we would all wail together
and sing

and each night
the stars skipped up and down
brightly to the sound.

let me put you to sleep,
as long as you are alive,
it is only a part of living child,
if we didn’t cry each morning and night
who would we be?
