I spent so many years raising children
now that’s done
It’s time for me to become what
ever I can become.
I gave you kids my best years
hope that’s enough
Don’t you go wasting it on just
The prophet and the prophet’s mother
but every deaf generation becomes
I received it and I passed it on
use it and it grows otherwise
age and amnesia.
So my children dig and dig more
with deep care
dig through the doors and into the floor
for the Therefore.
