Sentimental - Poem by AHO Speaks

What have you wrought with a single thought?

Not through a want, a need or even a desire
But to share of yourself from the burning fire.

Entrails that sweep across the sky
My God, you sanction that we cry.

To shed tears at the birth of one who looks like me
Softness of frame and loveliness of face to see.

To cry inside when my child ventures out on a date
My beloved baby, please for this time of your life; just wait.

Graduation with pomp and circumstance and the roll of the drums
My beautiful daughters and my handsome sons.

At their wedding my macho being inside to cry
For childrern I offer an eternal, joyous sigh.

Light of my life, light of my being and light of the way
Be prouductive, happy, contribute and please, 'have a good day',
