The Only Child

THE ONLY CHILD

One learns how to play fair
One learns how to forgive
And how to forget
One learns there is an even playing field
One learns there is always tomorrow
And there is always someone by your side to share it
Unless one is an only child
There is no “fair” when the grown-ups always win
There is no “forgiveness” when the stakes are not even
There is no “forgetting”
Ever
I’ll tell you what
You distract her
And I’ll steal the cookies
I hope it’s not to late to re-learn
