Children

Street, UK, 2004.
Lyrics from Kahil Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’.


Your children are not your children
They are the daughters and sons of life’s longing for itself
They come through you but not from you
And though they’re with you they don’t belong to you


And you may give them your love but not your thoughts
For they have their own thoughts
And you may house their bodies, but not their souls
For in the house of tomorrow they dwell, far beyond your dreams


Chorus:
Your children are not your children
They are the daughters and sons of life’s longing for itself
They come through you but not from you
And though they’re with you they don’t belong to you


You the bows from which your children are sent forth as living arrows
And He bends you with his might
That his arrows may go swift and far
So let your bending be for gladness


(Chorus)

Oh no, your children are not your children.
