Day 15 – “Ice Cream”

Standard

“Ice Cream” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Last Tuesday something happened that had not happened before

My mother gave me ice cream, then my father gave me more

They kept on filling up my bowl – Why? I’m not quite sure

I ate and ate and ate until I fell down to the floor

 

A feeling awfully strange came on so sudden and so quick

My stomach did some somersaults, a mean and nasty trick

My favorite food in the whole world was making me quite sick

I just couldn’t believe it as I took a final lick

 

And now I can’t stand ice cream, I can’t stand to see its sight

I don’t ask for it for breakfast, don’t want it late at night

In fact, the thought of ice cream now really gives me a fright

“Hey kiddo, you want some ice cream?”

Well… maybe just one bite!

Day 4 – “My Two Hands”

Standard

My Two Hands by Jaymie Gerard

Dedicated to the Children of Child Future Africa

 

My two hands can build

My two hands can hold

My two hands can lift up

My two hands can scold

 

My two hands can beg

My two hands can feed

My two hands can have

My two hands can need

 

My two hands can fix

My two hands can break

My two hands can give

My two hands can take

 

My two hands can touch

My two hands can feel

My two hands can hurt

My two hands can heal

 

My two hands can work

My two hands can play

My two hands can curse

My two hands can pray

 

My two hands can teach

My two hands can learn

My two hands can squander

My two hands can earn

 

My two hands can speak

My two hands can ignore

My two hands can make peace

My two hands can make war

 

My two hands have choices

And they understand:

The future of this world

Is here, in my two hands
