These young eyes will see the world,

And things that you never will

This young mouth will boast great things and great dreams

These young dreams will carry her to tomorrow

This young body will stride and strut its beauty

and this young face she will cover with color

These young ambitions will guide her to this world’s success

This young brain will strive for answers

This young mind will make her theology

and set her thoughts firm in what she believes

And these young feet will take her on a journey she may never even recognize

All while those old eyes watch

and those old lips whisper




Though those young feet travel

and the old eyes watch

It is always that whisper

in the back of her head

that kindly reminds her

in correction.


and wisdom.

She hears the whisper clear to the days

when she will whisper to the young feet

as they travel away…

Proverbs 19:20

Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
