There are many times I've found to have defined me as an adult,
but I myself did not perceive the state of my affairs.
But the day I delivered my Athena
I seemed to grow the grayest of my hairs.
My Athena is the voice of my inner self she speaks to me real low,
she guides me to my destiny although I do not always go.
One day she whispered to me while I was singing my niece to sleep,
she said the point of this child is for you to learn
and she is here to teach, that day my mind came alive;
I learned that the childish parts of me are what made my mind abroad,
for a child was the best kind of mind to have
leaving adult as my facade.
