Father


How can you see this world colliding
Father?
And no one can do anything about it.
Why let them starve and watch them die
Father?
Will you reach the sun and let us warm safely
Will you close my eyes and let me die safely
When will we live in peace?
How can we awake when the worst is over?
Father?
Don’t bring life’s to see a broken world
Bring us faith, Make us stronger
Is war all there is to be even
Is lies what we have to believe in
Father?
If we break today, will you built us tomorrow?
If we pray right now, will there be no sorrow?
Father?
If I reach you, will your hands heal me, and this shattered world?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
