The Rulers of Tomorrow©

Children

The rulers of tomorrow

They start-off looking like little seeds in a nest

Inside their mother’s womb

Not even their mothers know who they will turn out to be

She waits nine long months as they toss about

Making themselves comfortable for the duration

They’re thinking

Only they know their thoughts

One day they will be the rulers of the world

But for now they sit and process what the world is all about

For now

They enchant you with their youth and beauty

As they grow

They change and their minds are strengthening

Preparing for their roles ahead

Still molding

Still deciding

On just what they’ll do

But some day you know

They’ll be ruling you

So be careful of what you do

Because I’m sure they will always remember

What you’ve done
