Little one,

Do you see the road ahead

And the milestones to be reached

I have foresight and experience

Trust me, like I trusted my fathers

As they did, theirs


Little one,

Can you hear the clock

Ticking away, sixty seconds to a minute

I keep a watch on the hands of time

To match its pace

Like my fathers and forefathers did


Little one

Do you feel the pain

When I thrust the seconds down your throat

Minute by minute, ticking away into years

Millimeter by millimeter stretching from cradle to grave

And does all this sound meaningless

As it did to me?


Little one

Some say that time comes along with you

And milestones are motionless

Life is savored in moments

Rare, sweet and complete


Dear Little one

But I don’t get it, do I?

So as my fathers did

I'll compel you to see the milestones

Falling behind
