A Youth's Everything

"A Youth's Everything"
A first trial's bust seeks open arms to omnipresent consolation 
Attempts conclude in unconditional surrender but for an every time pleasantness
There breeds the encouragement to succumb to gravity
And often goes down the child, to liken the second part success, a misdirection all the same 
Stay away I say, Stay away
As for some neglect makes the heart grow fonder of you with absence 
Encourage only for trying to conquer ground on waddling toes, failure be put aside
To refrain from being there, disappointment is a part of life
In tripping and falling everyone must learn to walk
Let them learn instead to sulk alone, autonomy will make them stronger
And when they succeed on toddling feet soon there will be pride unlimited  
Vicarious joy for to the child who learned not to cry to you 
But to resurrect itself on its own bipedal terms, 
To leave alone, to love itself enough, to fight for gains other than your presence
And someday the youngster eventually will do the same to teach the best ways
Taught by the best in its eyes all because you allowed it to roam and face certain facts 
Existence whether good or bad must be fought for on its own
