never call a baby selfish

however greedy a baby's desire
however demanding a baby's cry
they differ from a grown up's
so-called ambition and authority

and it's not excused by fragility
for such is a baby's greatest strength
and it's not excused by simplicity
of the rather tireless wants

never call a baby selfish
because
a baby reaches for a need

asks with an exclamation,
question mark, and period
the one thing that matters
