Children are a blessing,
And let me tell you why
I was born with my father’s laughter
And my mother’s eyes.
My grandfather gave me music
The ability to read between the lines
My grandmothers taught me humbleness
And how to remain kind
All of them taught me
How to be courteous and wise.
My mother writes
My father hikes
My mother knows deception
She guards her heart for protection
My father loves the water
And would sail off into the ocean.
My mother is a Virgo
But she seeks justice like a libra
My father seeks happiness
Even if it kills him in the process
Me I am an equilibrium
Passive aggressive optimist
a roaring Lion
Misunderstood in my quietness
Seeker of wisdom, and justice
Because it brings me happiness
And I may die in the process
Singing my hymns, songs, and praises
I find the world in people I meet
That inside ourselves
Lives a society
My mother gave me that ability
To prophesy through intuition
To be innovative
And to holdfast to my visions
When I look outside I see adventure
And I owe that to my father
Getting lost in the wilderness
To let go of frustration And anger
Seeing the beauty of nature
And All that it has to offer
So when I say children are a blessing,
This is what I mean,
I am neither them or both, but somewhere in between
I am a witness, beneath my skin and eyes
I see everything for what it is
And it never lies.
