Races to Play

What a child

He knows how to play

He speaks in silence 

Holds his tongue 

His eyes read worlds of wonder 

He's feeling the pressure to 

Become now a man

But don't forget my dear 

Don't fear and learn to steer 

Honor yourself 

Feel those feelings 

Don't push them away

Trust yourself 

You were so authentic that day 

I wish you well

And hope you stress 

Some time to play.
