Off the cuff, a first presentation.
Was it beaten into you
As your father’s whip flew
Your mother’s screams too?

Were you filled with fear
Nothing to hold dear
But critical parents near?

Did you curl and break
Only for their sake
A prodigy to make

Your heart so pure
And unsure
The gift to endure
