Blink

Your kids are yours for a blink in time

Hold their tiny and not so tiny hands while you still can

 Before you know it ,the future you prepared them for shows up to claim them 

And when that certain future comes around, you’re left with only memories to hold

Letting them go is heart ache never ending

Set Them Free

Wings are for flying, don’t set them back, set them free to soar heights you yourself never even dared to ascend to. Your young eagles will astound you with every feat they accomplish because you had the guts to release them when their time came.

Judge N Jury

PARENTS: Our children are our judge and jury

There is no mock trial

We’re summoned daily 

And there’s no acquittal come execution day

Our last minute stay of execution will not come

As we’d hoped

But karma is a karmic wheel

She goes forward as well as back

Children then be careful, lest she rolls back on you

You will remember your judgements of us

When you become parents.
