Something to think about the next time your young offspring puts you over the edge.
                                When that boiling blood
                              begins coursing our veins,
                        and anger arises with our children,
                            let us pause and remember,
                                      we're raising
                                          not only
                            our sons and our daughters,
                            but, indeed, we are training
                              future fathers and mothers.

                            Consciously communicate
                                inevitable frustrations
                            with committed compassion.
                            Instill not fear, but respect,
                                knowing this is, indeed,
                                how our grandchildren
                                  will later be raised.

                              Remember to be mindful
                            when turning to our children,
                              for there can be no doubt;
                            we are leaving our imprints
                              on generations to come.
