For Our Children (Poem)

If you’re a single dad and single mother or happily married, mom and father.


It’s not the label that really matters, above all else its that we’re parents.


I know in my heart we both relate, this our destiny, love, and fate.


No matter where life may take us or even what life may one day bring us.


We all share one purpose and vision, we want to empower all of our children.


Infusing them with our year’s of wisdom and understanding to forever guide them.


Our hearts desire to make them whole, even a better person than we once were.


Our final hope and lasting prayer, they a unicorn, freely soaring through the air.
