Trap Ease...

As parents we cannot afford to slack off on keeping vigil over our young 'uns ...
How soon they fly away!

It is easy to fall...
Time’s tightrope of moments
Is full of knots and baited spots
Which seem safe at a glance
But we are becoming
The sum of moments spent
Like trapeze artists balancing
On beams of good intent

It is easy to see
When years have spanned the gap
From where we were to where we are
How time can set a trap
The habits that bear fruit
Rooted when we were young
Whether of good or ill repute
Will shape who we become
