first day

the fearful going to a new school

after a heart-breaking move;

the little ones with backpacks

weighing more than they do;

the teens driving their friends

early in the morning;

the kids who will stand at bus stops

with no food in their bellies:

no matter how often we forget

to look out for (or over) them,

we give thanks that you don’t
