I heard a wise woman say,
When they’re young they
Step on your toes. But when
They’re grown they
Walk on your heart.”

Our children see things
With mature eyes we tell them
What’s best

Childish eyes push way
Our guidance
They will do
What they will do

We show them what
Right looks like
Hope they will

Give them every
Then let them

Will they be successful?
Right in the God’s eyes?

They run to us to
Their twisted web of trouble
Every parent’s struggle

In the end they’re
For themselves and
Face the consequence

Until we become the solution
Not the problem
Their sin will always
Find them out

God will not ask
Restitution from us
They are on their own
Before God

We do our best
Leave the rest
To God
In His faithful love

Struggle ends
Where confidence begins
The Lord will teach them
And great will be their peace


All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. (Isaiah 54:13)
