Mothers Teach Your Sons

Mothers of the earth awake!
Open wide your eyes;
Let your hearts be open,
to every daughters' cries.

Babygirls being brutalised,
in vile insanity;
Their innocence shredded,
beyond humanity.

Daughters' burnt at kitchen fires,
just for money's sake;
Let your voices now be heard,
Don't forsake her to the stake.

Sisters hounded on the streets,
Mere objects to be owned;
Silence is a mortal sin,
to never be condoned.

Mothers, teach your sons,
Respect and Gentleness;
Stronger men protect -
Acts of blessedness.

Mothers, scold your sons,
Don't raise them to be Kings;
Teach them consideration,
and the healing that it brings.

Mothers, raise your voices,
for every silent tear;
Let this be your battlecry,
for the daughter that you were.
