Did they tell you?

Making-the-Angels-Flying-on-the-Sky-L

Did they tell you that your little boy

would one day be the first man

on the moon, or that he’d one day

become the first black president?

 

Did they tell you that your little girl

would look just like you, be the mirror soul

of you, and that she’d walk away with full

colors and choke you up inside?

 

Mary, did they tell you that your little boy

would grow up to die for each one of us

and cleanse  us of all our sins?

How would you have known, so humble back then?

 

But sometimes humility is destined for greater things

and flies valiantly, soaring and spreading on Angel wings.
