The Age

Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland

Will she break all the laws–

This small rebel without a cause?

This is the age—

This is her turn—

To rage,

To learn.

The “twos” are now in sight,

Can we manage to do this right?

Will we stay brave?

Will we stand firm?

Or cave,

And squirm?

Mayhem might not exist,

Perhaps the angel will persist.

So we will hope,

And we will pray,

For scope,

Each day.
