I see my children and their world
They smile without my fear.
My fear is their joy.
I see their friends.
Love without malice.
Love without my regret.
Their love is sincere.
My kids and their friends live in a colorful world.
One they are blind to.
Their words hold true.
Each character lets a window into their character.
A world where our big blue beasts, sporting fancy copper suits, are treated and given respect.
Respect they deserve for a job well done.
A job that easily can take lives.
My present is to them fear.
My future to theirs is change.
My past to theirs is regret.
I have a dream where my sympathy is their empathy.
