Poetry – Half a Brain

Half a Brain

We’re all born with half a brain.

The other half grows with love and care.

We neglect it at our peril.

Stunted brains may rip and tear.

All brain cells are nurtured

With cuddles, songs and laughs.

Every baby deserves a chance

With books, lullabies and crafts.

Neglecting our babies

Will stop their brains from growing,

Stifle their curiosity

So they won’t grow up knowing.

So many adults

Going round with half a brain.

For want of a little loving

Their life went down the drain.

We are all so fragile.

I think that is why we live in such a violent, destructive and greedy society.

I'd like to hear from you...
