Letter to my children

Wit, an empty field
Oh, there is nothing
Painful and devastating
As a basin claiming;
To be, to brim filled.

Beating its drum loud
But at crucial moment
Which success and growth
Is so dependent –
– on, it pours empty cloud.

So my dear children,
Please listen, be wise
Open ears and eyes
Yes, talk freely most times
But don’t beat your chest.

Be humble, my son
And daughter, apply-
-Sense, it never lies
Look up, look at the sky
Do you see the Sun-

-shinning all the time?
Though its heat can roast
The world, it still toast
To life, light, and warmth
Smiling all the time.

So my dear children,
Please listen, be wise
Open ears and eyes
Yes, talk freely most times
But never beat your chest.
