Children by Kahlil Gibran




"And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said,
Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.



You may given them your love but not your thoughts
For they have their own thoughts
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.




For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and
He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the Archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrpow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable."

Remarks: Everyone have their right to hurt and to be hurt....
