“Easier”

~Esther Mitchell, 2011~

It’s easier to love a child,

Who holds your same beliefs.

It’s easier to accept a child,

Whom you don’t have to work to understand.

It’s easier to give,

When a child demands their due,

Than to even notice,

When one gives everything to you.

It’s simpler to relate,

When a child’s choices make you proud,

It’s simpler to care,

When a child is everything you wished for.

Yes, it’s easier to love a child,

You don’t see as strange, “broken,” or obscene.

Much easier to love a child,

When  they’re actually seen.
