Children

you know how you laugh or cry
your response is noticed

or a memory of two
never questioning the life of you

we show our children the life as it is lived
but not as it should be lived

how we think and know what we are
but not what we do

have you noticed what we are doing
no, let it be known

we have buried our children
more than our children have buried us

but dont put it past you
our children look up to us

recognize what our children do
because it is always for you

take a stand
and do what you need to

leave with a smile
and take care of your child
