A child is like a sculpture
Hidden deep in precious marble
That just needs careful chiseling
To create a definite masterpiece.

You can craft a devil or an angel
Depending on your work and skill,
Fashion it not as if it were your kill,
Just let Master have His freewill!

His handiwork needs only your yield
He’s known to be the best in the field
His timing is really impeccable,
His expertise quite unparalleled!

So work with the gentle Master
To create a unique piece.
Be only His coworker, that’s all you need to be,
Just cooperate, if you want to succeed!

Do you want me to stay back to help?

Of course not. Everything is set.

Well then, I will take leave now,. Please take care, she said. wl

Biting her trembling lip, she walked away, struggling hard to prevent her tears from overflowing.

Unable to prevent herself, she turned back to see, knowing she would only see an empty driveway.

Blinding tears blurred the road she had to take.

Life had moved on.
