A tear falls,
Leaving holes within the ground below.
They open ever further with each new step,
The baby boy spreading his touch upon polluted world,
Leaving it with the freshness of new life.
Cleansing it of what has been.
The mother stares down from above,
Her heart sinking onto the fresh new ground,
And joining with the innocence of the baby – just for a second.
But a second is all that it takes for her to live again,
A second is all that is needed to love,
To regain hope.
