Placing your weakest
On full service’s mantle
Made your life giver hands
Instrumental ~ in tunneling
Bedrock of formative abilities~

Nurture sculpted fragile ornament
Love unwittingly hollowing own progeny ~

Life, a mixed pack of knocks
Knocked sense into the unprepared
Bringing to earth level, in grounded
Reality, fragile shell finally toughened
Somewhat, soft core stayed hollow~

Mantle ornaments do hum own conch songs
Short sighted may be, irredeemable, not ~
