A Mother's Child


A mother's children are her
pride and joy, and she'll do
anything to keep them safe.
But if a mother really loves her child
She will teach them not to hate.

Our children are the future,
And hold this country in their hands.
So instead of teaching them violence
We need to teach them to be all they can.

But if this war between the races continues,
Our children and thier country won't stand a chance.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
