i carry it around

like i would carry

a baby

in one of those

chest straps

its feet dangling freely

its arms waving

at strangers

no matter how often

it hurts, breaks, sinks

i won’t drop it

i will keep holding 

on to it

it beats a little faster

with every new

encounter

it’s learnt to choose

more carefully

but it will never stop

getting excited

about things, 

people, places

that feel just right

i carry it around

like i would carry

a baby

and i keep showing

and exploring 

my world

i keep painting

a smile 

on people’s faces

starting with my own

i carry it around

like i would carry

a baby

a teenie tiny baby hope

that will one day

be fully grown
