What I brought with me...
I brought one in who still holds her looks,
I think she lost more than she took.
Another I brought with eyes of blue,
I wonder though if his pride will calm,
so he can get what he is due.
Another I brought just like before,
He's quiet and shy but smart as could be,
He could cure a cause if he wanted too,
If only he could believe and see.
Trice now I brought another just like the others,
but a special breed of energy he does possess,
and he only need gain control and direct it for success.
The next I brought who surprised us all,
God caught him up, that was his call.
I will meet him one glorious day,
so there's not much else to say.
I brought yet another like the first,
thick hair and as smart as others too,
Attractive is she but less energy used,
If only a purpose worth reaching for,
She could find and desire to open that door.
Another I brought whose smile does shine,
Ambition and life she does not lack,
But I fear her trust could set her back.
The last I brought I do not know,
For his destiny was to fulfill and show,
another family love, so I let him go.
There are eight altogether, complete at this time,
I've passed on what I could, regrets are many,
I'll watch them bring in some more to shine,
and watch them raise them while I smirk to myself.
They won't see the personalities, the way I can see from here.
They are unaware they are raising themselves,
and now they can feel the fear,
of loving such rebellion they will always hold dear.
