What must it be like to have grown

What must it be like
to have grown
with people
who loved you
cared
guided you
towards
something more
better
than they were
and were pleased
when you made it
what must it be like
to have grown
without hunger
pain
loss
holes in clothes
with both parents
being there for you
not lost
in their own pain
lives
what must it be like
to have grown
in schools
that taught
you what you needed
to thrive
develop
go on to bigger things
what must it be like
to have grown
with people
who believed
in kindness first
not violence
who prefer smiles
some kind of love?
