The Truth About A Mother


What a mother would do
To shield her brood from pain
And all the hurts undo
Washed down by pouring rain.

What a mother would do
To care, prevent disease,
From getting near or through
To rob them of their peace.

What a mother would give
To bless them all with wealth
In faith on God believe,
Prayed for their spirit's health.

Yet some would do away
With what most mothers do
Their rules that tend to sway
Children to what's not true.

New theologies of lies
Take the child out from the mother
In latter years find their demise
With God's Truth and His power.

land the LORD your God is giving you.' (Exodus 20: 12)

'Children, obey your parents in the LORD, for this is right.
Honor your father and mother that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.' (Ephesians 6: 1-3)

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
