From the first
threatened to burst
I watched your first steps.
I heard your first words.
I watched as you learned to ride a bike.
I heard as you learned to read.
I held you in the night against monsters.
Your mind delights me
your heart astounds me
your desire to help
all the things I want you to bear forth
the shield to be held in manhood.
We are entering yet another branch
another era in your life
choices made now
ripple with consequences
turning you into the man you will become.
At every point
I will be there
with a loving heart
and a hug
waiting for you to come home
Picture is my own
There is no winning for losing.
Came across a post that blathered on about how everything we own is not made in Canada/US and jobs cannot be found.
Yet when we begin to make these products at home the prices go up and people bitch about that.
A) Send production overseas to save on cost to the public.
B) Shop locally made/produced items and pay a little more.
The choice is yours.
