I wrote this after my son was born.  I was so in awe of this new little being...

While you're sleeping
History is being made.
There's rioting by people of every color and shade.

While you're sleeping
World's records are being broken.
Gun control is always spoken.

While you're sleeping
Nations death tolls climb
Through famine, war, aids and crime.

While you're sleeping
There's talk of global warming
Political elections send people swarming.

While you're sleeping
There's tornados, snow storms, rain and thunder
Enough environmental hazards to put nature under.

While you're sleeping
Your inner peace touches me deep inside
Are you tomorrow's future, tomorrow's pride?

Very beautiful.  Children are the futures best hope, if we only teach them right.
