the commitment

every parent knows, after the existence of the child, the logic is different. it is instantly clear that the life of the child has infinite dignity. it is worth the grief, even if the candle is only lit for a short time.

once a child is born you’ve been seized by commitment, the strength of which you couldn’t even have imagined before hand. it brings you to the doorstep of disciplined service.

– the second mountain
it is only now
i hear beyond your words
with awareness
hope lights this day
the commitment is moral character
