The sun hasn’t risen yet I have;
I sit and work on making
the right moves for the kids I teach;
to make things right for them,
from love of their future
to healing their past,
and making the days they
try so hard to endure at present,
a pathway to the peace and safety they have earned..
..and sometimes are denied by the world,
or those they go home to.
I am the doorway.
I must be open for them–
and show them a path of love.
