RAW

When I have my son,

I will teach him to become an eagle,

To soar

And rise high in love,

Long enough to stay there

To know eternity.

I will teach him

To be a beast too

To be relentless in what sets his heart on fire

Such that as his heart drums,

It beats to the sound of this higher kind of Love.

What does it take to raise a son?

What does it take for him to know

As short as life may be?

He will leave a mark

What does it take to raise a son?

Ask our God

This is no dream,

It’s life,

Served raw.
