Life

On this beautiful day
As the children go out to play
I bow my head to pray—

That into the near future
They will see a joyful picture
And not be fallen by a lure.

From up above they will be blessed
Given peace, strength; and not be stressed
As life becomes fully dressed.

On this beautiful day
I bow my head to pray—
As my children went out to play.

You know, I never thought of myself as a philosopher; but in a way that's exactly what I seem to be doing in my works of verse here!May your road to success always be near you "as life becomes fully dressed."
