mommy, why? Written by Toni L.A. Cross

mommy, why?

why can’t i soar like a bird in the sky?
why are clouds fluffy and up so very high?
why can’t i eat a whole blueberry pie?
why is it flowers always have to die?

mommy, what?
what are freckles made of?
what is the best way to love?
what person invented the glove?
what country decided peace goes with dove?

mommy, how?
how many stars shine in the night?
how do you bend a beam of light?
how come i’m never supposed to fight?
how does the sun glow so bright?


mommy, when?
when do you become old enough?
when do dandelions know to turn to fluff?
when will i know all the important stuff?
when will i get all strong and tough?

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
