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..
