Seeds of poison

A child learns what it lives,
and lives what it learns.
Thought – the seeds they are,
sown – in a child’s mind.
“You may give them your love
but not your thoughts,
for they have their own”
so true, those verses, aren’t they?
The evilest deeds they are,
to poison a child’s mind;
for, the seed grows,
in his mind,
into a tree that seeds again.
wilting his innocence,
his heart and mind,
poisoning them all.
until,
the same seeds are sown again,
in his children and
children’s children.
Can those trees never be uprooted
and seeds unsown?
