Brown and agile child, I watch you as you sleep ...
and think about the loves you'll have,
and the secrets that you'll keep.

Brown and agile child, for you I wish, a place to grow,
where ones color doesn't matter ...
and acceptance of each other, is all we know.

Brown and agile child, with the innocence of youth,
I lie and wonder of days ahead ... and pray for the patience
to teach you of the truth

Brown and agile child, just a baby now ...
completely without care,
I wish for you-in years to come ...
a world that will be more fair.


Janet Marie/August 1980





Happy Mothers Day to all to which this title applies.
*smile*
Mothers come in so many various forms and one does not have to have given birth to qualify. Being a mother is about giving unconditional love and all the gifts that come with that kind of love.
take care, jm

This is beautifully written Janet Marie ... whatever the background or heritage a child is born into ... we are all just innocent children with futures ahead. Happy will be the world that accepts our wonderful variances and embraces our differences with appreciation for each unique child.

Best wishes,
/Kit

A beatiful, touching poem  
What you said is so true, you don't have to be a mother to qualify. Love your sentiments.

Sweet. =)  And your comments ring so true.
