You Are Worth Learning

lola_one

If you haven’t slept all night

Or want to put up a fight

You are worth learning

If you never sit still all day

Or want everything your own way

You are worth learning

If all you can do is scream

Or can’t find the words to tell me what you mean

You are worth learning

If you won’t eat your supper

Or demand you want another

You are worth learning

If you’ve fallen out with your friends

Or your day’s come to a sticky end

You are worth learning

If you refuse to put on your clothes

Or have the smelliest of toes

You are worth learning

If some days you tell me you hate me

Or others just want to berate me

You are worth learning

If you resist me on everything

Or have that crazy urge to win

You are worth learning

I will climb mountains in my mind

And in my heart

To understand

Every little part

That makes you tick

I will see you in your strength and your power

In your confusion

And fragility

And I will remember that you are you

And I, me

My eyes that hold you

My thoughts that shape you

Lay the imprint

For how the world will come to receive you

But most importantly, for how you relate

To your own heart

And mind

And no matter how roughly my own ships sails

I swear

I will come to this same place

No matter what

Because You

Are worth learning

No matter how much I long

I can’t be with you

Every step on your journey

But those that we do tread together,

Hand in hand

I know no greater thing to impart

That you, my child

Are worth learning
