My Heart Still Bleeds

While my drum beat may be different,
my heart still bleeds,
when your critical views wonder
about my parenting skills meeting that
of my children's needs.
I am simply planting a variety of different seeds,
to grow a different journey than that of the past.
But yes, my heart still bleeds.

Schooling, education, learning,
coerced, threatened, arbitrary or real
natural. flowing,
GLOWING.
Nobody on this planet is all knowing.
Yet they are learning all the same
GROWING.

While my drum beat may be different,
my heart still bleeds,
when your critical views wonder
about my parenting skills meeting that
of my children's needs.
I am simply planting a variety of different seeds,
to grow a different journey than that of the past.
But yes, my heart still bleeds.

Freedom to make choices,
That was the plan
all along.
WRONG
I walk the steps of a different song.
If I do not follow the crowd, you say I don't
BELONG.

While my drum beat may be different,
my heart still bleeds,
when your critical views wonder
about my parenting skills meeting that
of my children's needs.
I am simply planting a variety of different seeds,
to grow a different journey than that of the past.
But yes, my heart still bleeds.

Yet despite your concern,
my children delight in growing,
and yearning,
LEARNING.
where the wonder of the world
around them lies in their belly,
BURNING.

While my drum beat may be different,
my heart still bleeds,
when your critical views wonder
about my parenting skills meeting that
of my children's needs.
I am simply planting a variety of different seeds,
to grow a different journey than that of the past.
But yes, my heart still bleeds.
