I look at you lovingly, my creation
yet I know you will choose to go your own way

I know you are under no obligation
to behave as I want, your desires hold sway

Why this unreasonable expectation?
You are a person, a character, not clay

You are not me – but the next generation
the future is all yours, though nurture I may

my thoughts, art, stories are hypothecated
I’ve no control how they will be narrated
I make, I give – to the past I’m indebted
