Baby Grows Up

webalexdrawing 2 (1)

A baby boy dressed in tiny
blue jeans and a tee that reads
‘I love Momma’,
takes a wobbly first step

and falls.

A man in a stiff white shirt and
pinching shoes
steps up to the
door of suits and paychecks
and turns the knob.

It’s locked.

But Momma knows
if her baby falls
he gets back up
and he will fall

and he will get back up
and he will
learn to run.
