The primary goal of any species is survival and evolution.
If so, our primary job then is

not to guard her
for the difference between her and me
is but my age, 
and perhaps some experience.

not to mold her my way,
but to set her free,
for her spirits might be brighter,
and broader than mine.

to create a future brighter than our present,
plays a role.

Fostering emotional confidence, 
a compass to navigate the worldly noise,
plays a role.

to make her feel loved,
yet grounded in reality
plays a role.

to enable her
to become her best in the world
plays a role.

to encourage her to live consciously,
And become her best for the world
plays a role.
