    Children have an innocence
    So raw and oh so pure
    They know what love is
    And they truly are adored
    For Jesus loved the little children
    The smile of a child
    We could all learn from the little ones
    And the sincerity in their smiles
    They know not how to hate
    Until the example is shown and set
    And once their innocence is violated
    It is hard for them to forget
    The first time I ever saw my son
    Was the greatest day for me
    I can't explain in any form of words
    But it felt so heavenly
    To be blessed with one so beautiful
    So loyal and so true
    But here's a fact that I know for sure
    There is a child in all of us too
    For children dream
    And children hope
    And they love unconditionally
    Until they grow up
    And are forced to live
    Someone elses' reality
    Sent to wars
    To fight for money, oil and a false sense of pride
    Thou shalt not kill
    But it's okay if for your country you will die
    Thou shalt not bear a false witness
    So why do so many claim
    They are so righteous and full of love
    When all they spread is pain
    God is a spirit and one must as it is written
    Worship in spirit and in truth
    But why do so many lie
    And kill with a salute
    So many in vain, throw around a name
    Because in that name is so much power
    But all done in the dark will come to light
    In the final hour
    Recently I was told, I should not think for myself
    But since when is it righteous to just take the word
    Of someone else?
    It is written that one should seek
    And if one seeks one finds
    So I seek truth and I seek knowledge
    And I seek love divine!

    Yes, our children are so very innocent indeed. Yet way too soon we turn them over to the hands of our oppressor who don't look or act as we do, we got to save our babies...
    In order to save them, we FIRST have to save ourselves ..to reach and teach them.
    wonderful piece poet!

    We do have some of the innocence of a child within us still, and it is so often misused and abused. Posed directly on point poetess.

    Your son is blessed to have a mother whos perspective is so clear and strong.
    It read like something a mama would share with her girlfriends while sitting round the kitchen table... :grouphug: :)
