the hard children

the world is a hard place
so we raise children
with fire and brimstone
with grit
We harden them to the embodied parts of themselves.
prize reason, and rationale
over feeling and being

the world is a hard place
so we raise hard children
and so the cycle of the
hard world continues

perhaps we should raise soft children
