Who Am I

Somewhere in a hospital, maybe just across town
a new child arrives, by the ounce and the pound-
"Who am I?" this child of the universe shall ask,
"Whether I succeed or fail, it will
be your task"-
-"I came today, just as I am, God says
I'm great, regardless of race or ethnic background"-
-"We all arrive with the same great status,"-
"but please, answer for me, Just who am I,
And what is my destiny"?
"I am this child you hold in your hands, Don't
Abuse or neglect, I can't understand"!
"Speak to me with knowledge, Invest in me your time."
"All great people were babies,
at one time"!
