Love The Children

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.


Children need love

They are innocent souls which needs to be guided

Children are blessings to us

Embrace them with care, never to sidestep or chided

Just take a look, look in the eye of an innocent new born

Pure to the world, unaware of the human storm

They need to be reassured that they are special

For a nation without beautiful kids would be detrimental

Children need love

They need to be taught life lessons outside of school

To think for themselves, to love the land, and never to be misused

Take a child’s hand,

Sit the child down and tell them something beautiful

Give them knowledge about the earth

Explain to them the significance of their birth

Hug your child, let them know you love them so much

Let them feel secure in our presence

Give a kiss on the forehead, a ruffle in the hair

Things that are little, but speak much

Doesn’t it break your heart when a child cries?

Don’t you feel empowered to help them in the hardest times?

Give a hanky, wipe their eyes

Wash their wounds, hush them, and make them smile

Remember, children live what they learn and learn what they live

So, care, love, commitment, respect and protection is what we must give.

Innocent Souls

I like the message here. Children are some of the most overlooked and least respected souls on earth. Sad.

Billy. That is why the simile goes; As innocent as a child. Well my simile anyway.

I find it hard, at times, to love all adults.Children, on the other hand, are easy for me to love....I wonder why??? Actually, I don't wonder at all. :)
