Generation After Generation

From the form

of a screaming child

she dragged a teenager

a raging slave to his own passion

staggering backward

with a load of dread

from the thrashings

of this spoiled brat

she fashioned a gentleman

confident and free

from his tradition of depression

her words of love grabbed his head

and swiveled it forward

through one woman

he found redemption

the chance to take another woman

and create another mother

because only through women

can life be transferred from a father

to another


because the fruit of love

is life


and the fruit of life

is another chance to love
