the kids

she is in me and he is in her
and he is in him and I am in them
and so it goes, from one generation to
the next.
in their youth, they believe they have
made their own destiny just as I did
when I was thrown on out on the street,
I'll show my independence.
free from the family that runs in your genes,
your laugh, your way of talking and walking,
yes, I see myself in him and in her, I see her in him
and him in her, the same smiles, yes
they are mine and they are his
and they are theirs.
