Come away o human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand
— By W. B. Yeats from the poem “The Stolen Child” — (This comes out in the movie A.I. in the scene in which David, the child robot, asks Dr. Know how he can find the blue fairy.)
I’ve never had an easy life nor has it been overly difficult. I’ve overcome many obstacles and know to count my many blessings. I love the above lines from the poem, “The Stolen Child”, because I feel like I realized just how full of weeping the world is as a preteen which were my most difficult years so far and I hope it remains that way.
