[dikt] A Poem for January 15th, 2023

This poem is dedicated to

The Majesty

Before I became a parent,

life was just taking care of myself and my needs,

my wants, my hopes, my dreams,

my experiences, my life

but now, I have learned that my heart grows both from fear and love every day.

The fear comes from the risk and visualization of impending injury to my young,

the love comes from tracking growth and genetic/characteristics throughout a growing personality,

a little person

who came from nowhere

who is now here

wanting your love and attention,

teaching you the core desires of all people,

and foreshadowing how we approach each facet of life.

My wife says,

“I fall more in love with you guys every day.”

This is majestic.
