    they don't see color
    when they play
    they're just
    boys

    Tom and Jon
    bound by
    their love of

    scooters,
    digimon
    lizards,
    basketball
    soccer
    super mario
    bikes,
    sword-fighting
    star-gazing
    on summer nights...

    and each other


    they just don't see
    color
    when they
    walk to the
    bus stop
    together
    every day

    and they fight for
    each other
    at any unkind word
    hurled their way

    Tom, the tow~headed
    Jon, my nappy~headed

    just boys

    I pray
    they keep
    their childhood
    love for what
    they have in
    common

    and stay
    this way

    and a little child shall lead them. the bible tlaks of how we should love GOD in the love of a child for they have no color barriers and no preconceived notions. they allow the liking of material things to determine how they react to others. this is such a wonderful place to be and to live. i pray they shall never have to occur the difference in their colors...

    speak the words GOD gives you poetess and we shall listen...

    their innocent expressions
    proves a reflection
    through your soul
    manifestin
    and simple life lessons
    to make you whole
    as they grow you grow
    and I know you know
    so many youths guessin
    to have a mom like you is such a blessing!

    Well Done!

    I hope they do also--it takes the adults to mess up that relationship--hopefully they will not have those adults i their lives until it is too late to change them--loved it--Amun-Ra
