If she ignores me and hates her mother;
and if she gets in trouble at school;
and if she screams and whines and complains;
and if she gets tattooed, pierced and dyed;
and if she runs off with a motorcycle boy
whom she marries, divorces and parents a child with;
if she’s gay or decides she doesn’t want to be a she;
when she’s expensive;
if she joins the Marine Corps;
if she marries a POG;
if she leads the liberal movement;
if she becomes an Instagram diva,
cuts her shorts to half-ass level
and wears a napkin to school;
I’ll not be pleased nor will I passively sit by,
but I will love her no less,
and I will continue to pray as I do that God calls her
and she answers Him,
not merely so that she behave,
but so that she believe.

If she knows only a few things
may they be that Mom & Dad love her,
that God is good,
and that our lives are best lived for Him.

Now and forever.
