Do not inquire of your kids.
To aim towards remarkable lives.
While such effort may appear praiseworthy,
But that is the dumb way.
Instead, assist them in discovering the marvel.
And the wonder of daily living.
Show them how much fun tasting is.
Apples, pears, and tomatoes teach them to cry
When people and pets pass away.
Show them the limitless joy
In a hand’s contact.
And bring the commonplace to life for them.
The exceptional will handle itself.
