So much innocence
As a crisp group of young minds
Cherished souls
Passed by
Bold opportunities
Unrestricted confidence
Running wild
Not tainted
By a world of fears
Constraints and worry

Who learns from who?
We grow
To become rigid
Our outlook
Harsh to tempered opinions
But we are adults
Owners of direction…

So go beyond

Embrace the chanting love birds

Created by lily ferns
That walk through the stories of love

I weathered many storms
Touching torch paper emotions
As they fuse
Togetherness notions
Stem oak fingers
That grow…
