Saints and Monsters


Children born into the world
lack any sense of being
minds blank like empty slates
ready to be written
They do not know right from wrong
or what is good or what is evil
minds pure and unpolluted
They learn as they grow
all the secrets of this world
all the beauty it has to offer
and the dangers that lurk
that can destroy you
in a blink of an eye
parents, teachers and
the society at large
plays an important role
on what the end result is to be
And that end result
Is the ultimate question
whether the child will grow up
to be a saint? or to be a monster?
