What I Want For You

Dedicated to all
my children near and far.
 
 
What is in my heart for you -
is what is in my heart period dot dot. -
My heart is filled .. 
Brimming with love for you  
and love for all of 
my universal children:
  
I live to heal myself through healing my
CHILDREN who have been CASTED INTO
ROLES THAT DO NOT FIT THEIR CHARACTER-
My lovely CHILDREN are STARRING
IN ROLES THAT DEBASE.
 
YET KEEPS THEM INvolved
THE THRILL OF THE CHASE.
Roles they were never prepared for.
MY HEART OVER- FLOWS
WITH LOVE FOR the children berated.
BEING Reared with blueprints,long outdated
being RAISED BY CLUELESS PARENTS.
 
What is in my heart
for you is what
I have in mind for you
Hope YOU See MY SCARS
AND ASK HOW I GOT THEM-
I would love to lessen your woes  
replacing the wrong input 
that has been taught.
 
To PROTECT YOU FROM THOSE
WHO WOULD STEP ON YOUR TOES
What I have in mind for you is that --
You become the one to overcome. 
I want you to
be the one addressing 
this yoke of oppression
 
That you be the one who refuses to
follow the path of the wicked.
That you write your own ticket.
To become what you please
go where your are needed.
 
That you be the one who
will  smile and be counted
as an asset to the creator
your country and your people.
 
 What I want for you-
Is what I want for me-
Is what I want for
-for my own seeds-
That is to be able
to PROTECt our loved ones.
from harm.

the     " Y " is a placeholder
YOURs BECOMes OURs -
 
No need to ASK WHY;
The fact that we are still alive.
IS ENOUGH for you to know.
And the proof is in your living.
 
I want you to be the wise one
to be charitable in your giving
Also thankful when receiving
Not aloof to the proof.
 
Have the dignity of composure
when faced with those
who thumb their noses-
Inspite of all the dung
we've walked through
 we still smell like roses.
 
 
Wanting for you to be
the one who lives on to dispel
the myth, and armed with proof
not aloof to the truth.
 
That is what is in my heart for you
is that you be seen clearly
as a Glorified light-
That you be able--
To bring haughty
noses out of the air-
 
Naughty enough
to be understood
deified enough to do
the most good.
not afraid of --
but do not have to
dance in the dark.
or walk in alleyways,
or weave between
yellow tapes and crime scenes.
 
Whats in my heart for you is
that you may dance
amongst the flowers
and roll down hills in green grasses.
And that you never
be subjected to all the jaded faces
that want to make you
a part of their jaded world.
 
If you are born as a girl
I want you to have a husband
that always stands up
to your adversaries
and evokes extreme
giggles and laughter from your being.

And for my sons -
I want a wife that will be discerning.
As I pray that she will be--
all you will ever need
in this life.
period... dot dot dot..

    Universally we as poets and parents- all want our Children and all Children to find that we left the world better for them than we found it.
