Grace II

While a girl cuddles a doll, a baby boy fancies other toys
Building blocks, cars and trucks, these are his favorites
No time wasted, his hands cleverly break them into pieces
Tries to fix them back, his perseverance and 
Knack for mechanism is expressed undoubtedly
A handyman marches to the grown up world
With his cries and screams tries to control others
With his hugs and smiles he wins the love desires
His aspiration to become a master,
His possessiveness over his mother
The qualities of a Man is shown even in his tender age

    There is a saying here that if you raise your daughter as a boy she will have no limitations. I think there is a grain of truth but do not entirely agree. It was a nice treat to read two new poems.
