Protect those
Save from fears
The meek and weak
Lift them up
Rise above their darkest hour
Emblazen them with honour
Feed and protect
Shower them with golden nuggets
Knowledge and experiences
Enrich their lives
Inspire and drive
Become a guide not hindrance
Help exploit the weakness around
Enable growth and progressions flair
For one day it will be paid forward
Without thankless endeavour
Those loved and protected
Within their actions
Carry our inheritance forward
For no financial gain
Too generations not yet born
And for many too come
We the Parents of futures fruit

Genetic and Social
Mutations of standards
From liniage strong
Parental skills passed by generations
Manners and inner strength born
Teachings and lessons passed
Growth of self
In hands of natures prose
Nurture not inseminal feeding
Rules of engagement blurred
Best foot forward
Your life for theirs always
Battles un noticed by Kin
Thankless tasks handled
Tantrums quashed
Toddler and teenage years breezed
Decades of understanding freely wash
Still we give our all regardless
Backed to the hilt often
Comfort and praise spawned true
Chastisement doled out on neccesity
Parentage rights and customs followed
