Now Awsome

I don’t care what you say
I have the urge to write
To tell the world what happened
just the other night

I went to a party
This time a baby shower
I wasn’t going to stay for long
Maybe just an hour

You know how a shower goes
Everyone baby bearing age
They all dress up in the latest styles
showing off things that are the rage

One mother sat beside me
feeding her little son some beans and rice
I put out my hand… said give me five
trying to be nice

This little tot was holding on
the other hand was free
Stuck this hand in his mouth
and pulled out beans and rice for me

I just sat there with open palm
so everyone could see
The purest of all creation
just shared his food… with me

I pondered for several days
weather or not to put this happening
to verse… At first I thought this is silly…
Then I thought… NO!… this is real….
Then I thought… NO!… this is Awsome..
What more can you ask of anyone then for
them to give you the food right out from
there own mouth… and I a stranger……
