Simply Marvelous

Simply Marvelous
Samantha Morin

Chewing on a cracker
with only two teeth
Grinning, so excited, so proud
As if no one but you
had ever eaten before
Playing with the food
learning it’s texture, smell and taste
Convinced you are a marvel
because you eat
Oh child, you are so close to right
and yet so wrong
You are a marvel
wrought of love and fate and stardust
A person who dreams
and laughs
and cries
One who has grown so much
and will grow so much more
The cracker has little to do with it
