HOPE IS A TIRELESS TODDLER

Written by: romeo naces

Hope is a tireless,
wide-eyed toddler
who happily drools 
at the thought of again 
taking tentative 

... steps.


         She sways sideways, 
         reels backwards,
         staggers forward, 
         falls down again
         on bruised 

         ... knees.


Again, she gets up, 
starts walking, plodding,
innocently undaunted, 
fumbling, tirelessly
toddling on tiny 

... feet.
