Our Children’s Eyes

by | Poetry, Writing | 0 comments

What will our children see
When time has past and as seasons flee
Just what will be their thoughts
On the decisions we made, which changes to their life have brought

Will we see in their eyes grattitude?
For all the words we spoke and all that we did do
Or anger and resentment
For all we neglected and failed to do?

Will they look back with a fond love?
For the signicance and impact that we had
Or will they fear to look back for in their reminiscing
All their dread and fears are reminded

What are we leaving for our children?
What memories and moments will we etch in time?
Times that will build and shape and mould?
Or moments of despair and hurt and gloom?

Let us go through our lives remembering this one thing
All our decisions we may whimsically make, the future they are shaping.
May we continually cast our minds eye forward and ask of our selves
“In my childs eyes what difference am I making?”

The Man I want to Be

What is the definition of a man? What value has he? Is it measured in the size of his heart or in his muscle capacity? What kind of man do I want to be? A man of integrity. Who knows truth and and lives by it Who walks in humility and love. A man who's nature is...

The Show That Unfolds

As I travel along a lonely passenger In this vehicle filled with many Within and without are two worlds that provide a show as I go on my journey Within I see sitting two seats down from me a mother and her children One on the seat and one on the knee So that they...

Precious Moments

You will never fully understand How much I cherish the moments that we share As time goes on and fills so quickly How much fewer these moments are spare Spare to spend laughing and joking Sharing stories of our days Spare to spend crying and comforting Sharing a warm...

Sadness

Sadness is a state of mind, an emotion, triggered by circumstance Like loss, or hurt Or some other happenstance What makes us sad? Why do we get this way? Can't we just not think and forget What makes us feel this way? But I think to do so Would be the greatest...

Unbounded Potential

The cry of a new baby born Will ring soon through out this place It is being grown, knit together in wonder while in the womb he patiently waits What will unfold in this precious life? What will he become? Currently a bundle of unbounded potential Waiting to be taught...

The Unnoticed Symphony

Pigments pierce through the dark, royal blue canvass Round and bright they begin to take their form As they rise a symphony begins Creation joining together, uniting in song. The hue's in the blues are much lighter now, and the tempo has picked up The stillness...

Yes Scotland

Yes we are a strong and proud nation Ready to fight any battles that come our way Ready to send any threat fleeing No matter what troubles come or fears dismay Yes the power of Rome could only come so far At the wall they stopped because we couldn't be tamed With all...

Why I walk you home …

It may be due to some ancient code Written in my DNA From an almost forgotten notion of ages past When men were gentlemanly Maybe how I was brought up was a factor In why I carry out this deed Why whenever I can I like to make sure Someone gets safely to where they...
