And 'The World's in Ttheir Hands?

My life looked to be all
about changing the diaper,
and washing the clothes,
of a kid that was hyper!

Many's the time,
I felt that falling in love
had let me down, with
approval from the Lord  above

Oh, woe is me,
Oh, Woe is me!
I began to work
on getting a degree.

But, what I had done,
did not set me free
but bound me  to
children for eternity.

Nary  a moment,
from that time then
 all my thoughts
 included children.

From kids on the playground
to kids in the band,
from who's on the team,
to shoes filled with sand.

From falling off the swings and
breaking their arm,
to being super-glued in their locker
by a sweet girl with charm.

Then there were the children at home.
Told to do their homework,
But,.. the exciting adventures
that in little minds, lurk
Around the corner lies 
a firecracker all dressed in red,
when thrown in a stove, it leaves
a spot on a carpet like on a bald head.

Outdoors you hear your one-year-pld
half buried in sand and giggling with mirth,
up to her waist in the sandbox, a hole, 
meant to get to China, through the earth.

Before you  know it many years have passed.
 kids off having family of their own.
 kids  at school, now gone out of your 'ife 
all of us, like kings and queens on our throne.

Taking care of children makes us young again; it sounds like a wonderful life. I hope you never stop having adventures. :)



they are fun to look back on.... as they are occur they sometimes seem to be overwhelming

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
