I’m shielding my kids

With a net

Over their heads..

but I’m the only predator

If I leave..

They’ll be exposed

To the darkness

In this world

To the sharp edges

Standing at hand

to scratch their innocence

If I stayed…

they’ll be in harm’s way

From a mind that thinks not

From a heart that explodes

From a love that sees

Too much discipline

From the hands that’s

Rugged from trying to

Give them the best..

the lines under my eyes

Turning into crest

I’m a predator

In the eyes of the world

But to my kids

I’m the one

Shielding them

I’m the one

Where they find rest..

nothing can move me

From holding that net..
