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.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
