Fear of Homeschooling

chrisgonso4

Here is your time, young one
You are allotted the same amount per day as the rest, 14 hours
And you’ll spend it
We want you to survive
They want you to survive
We love you
They love you
And you’ll spend your time

How you spend it will say everything about you
How you spend it will say everything about us
And you’ll spend your time
As measured out by the Fates, you’ll spend your time

And time will come when
What we want won’t matter
What they want won’t matter
You’ll look back on the time you’ve spent, little one
You’ll look forward to the time you have left
And, still, you’ll spend your time
