Small hands,
Nose touch,
Big smile,
Big punch!
Wait, what happened?
Why do you hit?
Don’t justify,
Don’t call it spanking,
You say he learns?
What, that you’re bigger?
He is aware…
What?
Again you find another reason?
Why not just talk?
You can’t, he doesn’t know?
Well have you taught him?
No…
So you punish, for not teaching.
O, rest a moment, you are troubled,
You ask so much of him,
His tiny mind, this huge world,
No patience, no compassion,
Just stop and ask if you learnt something…

So stop, stop and think,
You will soften your fist,
And you will see all the change.
