Two Years Old

for Kenny Jr.

by Michael P. Rodriguez

Laughter and love overflow while I witness your
Innocence.  Your world is as small as you are; but your
Love makes Machiavellian dreams die.

Kind gestures become testimonies questioning the iniquity
Embedded within you
Naivety holds you close while
New wisdom and
Experiences expand your boundaries as you yield
To them; cautiously you
Harken to the words that temper and assist you.

Joined by blood and unconditional love I see the future; an
Oasis in waiting confirmed by my
Hearing your sweet refrain in words
Not yet understood unless discerned through
Spirit.  Watching you
On the edge of awakening I wait in readiness to pounce so
Neither men nor angels will hinder you achieving full stature.
