➡️Your children⬅️

Your children are not your children 

they are sons and daughters of life, 

eager for themselves. 

They don't come from you, but through you 

and even if they are with you they do not belong to you.

You can give her your love

but not your thoughts, well,

they have their own thoughts.

You can warm their bodies 

but not their souls, because,

they live in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,

not even in dreams.

You can strive to be like them

but do not try to make them similar to you

because life does not go back,

nor does it stop at yesterday.

You are the arch of which, your children

like living arrows they are thrown.

Let the tilt

in your archer hand

be for happiness.

For although he loves

the arrow that flies,

he loves the stable bow in the same way.
