    How do we look at it? Breivik showed much inhumanity in his heart and mind by killing more than 80 young people in that island in Norway. And he sued Norway for inhuman treatment for putting him in isolation, and he won in the name of Human Rights Convention!

    Thanks for your response, Graham Thomson! I have just recently realized that Poemhunter's page for quotations is a great menu to come across with good messages to inspire.

    Love your quotations - an effective riposte to our darkening world. You are an angel on the side of light and revelation. An insipired poet.

Best Poem of Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Teacher, Teacher




Teacher, teacher, teacher, teach me now
Teacher, teacher, teacher, guide me now
Teacher, teacher, teacher, show the way
You are my light
You are my guide.

Teacher, teacher, teacher, comfort me
Give your listening ears when I cry
Help me find the strength in what I can
You are my help
You are my guide.

Teacher, teacher, teacher, build me up
When I do wrong, show me what is right
Teacher, teacher, teacher, let us laugh
You are my friend
You are my guide.

Angel In The Dark

She flaps her wings of freedom
to announce her presence.
Darkness spreads its wings
to victimize those who walk
on the narrow roads-
lost in the dark.

She spreads her light
And darkness loses its might
