First came birth as did we all,
A neutral force guarded by angels.
Outside their influence lingers an evil, some of which we cannot discern.
Two forces in my life have guided me. Two of the three primary colors.
A cartoon boy as yellow as a lemon and as solid as swiss cheese
Teaching me the power of laughter and offering kindness to others.
A national icon buried underneath our feet swimming with the fishes.
The second was a man who wore multiple colors throughout his life
Camoflague, then red, and lastly blue.
An army man, a fireman, a policeman, and a family man.
My personal angel, who allowed me to have my first breath because the doctors almost stole it from me
A man who taught me to be selfless because this world won't change if I demand reparations
My angel has been called back for his duties and is no longer by my side
I shall carry on these teachings because they have made me into the women seen today
To spread the joys of helping
To spread the joys of laughter
The joy of kindness and selflessness
