Our Hearts, Our Children

by victortouche

The stepping out
on one's own,
is...exhilarating.

And scary.

I say again,
you will succeed.
You are an old soul.

And...you
are me.
Smile.

Yes,
I have occasionally
mentioned this.

But you,
are only beginning
to know...
confidence.

Invulnerability.

That you
are the end and means
to get there.

You have no idea yet,
what you are capable of,
doing.
Achieving.

The future is yours,
limited only by your doubts.
By your parent's fears,
your parent's tears.

You, are responsible to yourself,
and...humanity.
For your intelligence,
your skill set,
was given to you.

A gift.

But what you do with it,
what you accomplish,
who you affect in this world,
with your gifts-

that is,
and will be,
the measure of you.

Though,
regardless,
your father knows
your measure
is infinite.

Ah...must we not continue to attempt
to pass on our wisdom to our progeny,
while maintaining our role as parent
and supporter?
