50 year plan

keep my mother proud of me

 

give my sons braggin’ rights

love in their hearts

and wisdom in their minds

 

be the reason my father’s sooty

fallen angel wings

spread wide

closer to the throne of god

when i do something right

 

perform a poem

at the inauguration

of the first female president

 

allow my  deeds to accomodate

sleeping well at night
