THE CHILDREN

THE CHILDREN

KAHLIL GIBRAN SAID “ YOUR CHILDREN ARE NOT YOUR CHILDREN. THEY ARE THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF LIFE LONGING FOR ITSELF”
FOR SO MANY PARENTS
THIS IS HARD TO DIGEST
WHEN PARENTS DO THEIR BEST
TO SHAPE THEM WHILE IN THE NEST
TIME AND TIME AGAIN
PARENTS ARE THE PAPER
THE CHILD IS THE PEN
HE OR SHE WILL WRITE THEIR OWN STORY
WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT
IT’S SOMETHING WE CAN’T STOP
YES THE CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE
PARENTS TRY TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR DAY
PARENTS CAN GUIDE AND NURTURE
BUT NOT GET IN THE WAY
THERE IS A WORLD THEY SEEK
PARENTS HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF
THEY’RE GIVEN VALUES THEY WILL KEEP
AND THE SECURITY OF LOVE
EACH GENERATION IS RESPONSIBLE UNTO ITSELF
TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE GROWTH
OF HUMAN WEALTH
EACH CHILD HAS A PURPOSE
THAT MIGHT NOT BE CLEAR
SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR CHILD
WILL HELP YOU KNOW WHY THEY’RE HERE
THEY HAVE VOICES
THEY MAKE CHOICES
THAT CAN MAKE US VERY PROUD
THEY CAN ALSO MAKE DECISIONS
TO DO THINGS THAT ARE NOT ALLOWED
BECAUSE YOUR CHILD IS YOUR SEED
YOU WANT THEM TO GROW A CERTAIN WAY
YOU’LL PROVIDE PRAY AND PLEAD
THEY’LL BRING A BRIGHTER DAY
CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING
A MIRACLE REALIZED
THEY CONTINUE OUR STORY
KEEP THE LEGACY ALIVE
THERE IS NOTHING MORE PRECIOUS
THAT WE WILL KNOW ON EARTH
BUT TO LOVE AND CARE FOR A CHILD
AND MAKE SACRED EVERY BIRTH
