My early days were filled with those
who truly seemed to care
and never made it seem a pose
to congregate or share

but once I grew enough to try
and place within the race
I quickly grew unsettled by
the glaring lack of grace

displayed by most with whom I ran
which caused me to withdraw
and I became a lonely man
repulsed by what I saw

until one day a little voice
said "Papa" then I knew
another reason to rejoice
which multiplied by two

a pair of hearts that I adore
removed my glaring pout
reminding me what life is for
and what love's all about.
