– what kind of world –

To my

grandniece and my future godchildren,

won’t you take some time in the

heavens, look down and listen?

Heartbreak of the ones be-

fore you, the hideous nature

of my realm cannot claim your sweet

smiles; be damned if you let it

take the helm.

What kind of world…

what kind of world will you make

from this mess? I

have no guess.

What kind of dream…

what kind of dream will you grow

from your seed, into

destiny?

Know better, that’s all a

poor man like me can ask.

Do better, no matter

how dangerous the task.

What kind of world…

what kind of world will you make

from this mess? I

have no guess.
