Toddlers instead

Instead of castle-storming
maybe we can mobilize
so precious and magical
and all the land would helplessly adore
the little smiles that make the world

and care for them faithfully until
(toddlers being toddlers)
we would know the sleepless hours
and the biting,
be collapsed under the climbing
and have feelings hurt by careless new words

but by then it would be too late
and instead of hate
we would all know the selfless depths
of love

(it’s open link night at dverse!)
