Our sons laughing, splashing down the water slide, our foster daughter, asking to change her swimsuit,
Time, swishing by;
They, untying family, adopted children, unknitting hearts, patchworking normalcy, bonds,
Mesh, city-folk, let go of frivolous, Feel the beat, vibrating, bouncing from the black man's car;
Hope, pray, abhor the small towns; watch my boys, my hope of a daughter, watch them closely; Do not become oil,
Immerse in truth, NEVER only tolerated, only floating, never accepted; Boys, my daughter, watch, look, listen,
Swish, swishing time;
Realize difference; kindness or pity; generosity or obligation; Detect and define
Will they find the soul that God made for them; Family, real family, one to cleave.... All others fade.
Time, it swishes;
They take, we keep, they spend, we remember; Pour into souls, emotion, experience.
Swishes on by;
City, take us. Immerse children. Immerse! We cannot float. We will not float. Nevermore
No Time, No time to waste
