I love my little girl. I still call her “Little Girl.” She’s now 14, as tall as her mother, and full of aspirations, new feelings, and visions of a coming future.
I remember when I first learned that my wife was pregnant. I was stunned, scared, and in denial. I could think of no way that this would work.

what a world of illusion you created
a world of maya
where forgetfulness and confusion is the norm
and people seek comfort in each other
trying protecting their wounds
taking each step with caution

like a child
who is given toys
as a distraction
you filled the world
with forms and colors
shapes and feelings
that people spend their whole lives
to own, tolerate and as a tool to find meaning
one person’s hell
is another’s heaven
stepping on each others whims and desires
most people wander around with chains
tied around their necks and bodies
like slaves pulled in all directions
by society, by their own dreams
yet handful, just a handful
the lucky ones, the chosen ones
find liberation, find freedom
while trapped in this body
in this web of delusion!
