Humanities Moral Responsibility - Poem by AHO Speaks
Where are the monuments and memorials of long ago?
In memory of the fruit of its vine; a nations young hero's?
A nation that honors death more than giving
Suffers from denial of its reason and purpose for living.
They who memorialize death by an edifice of stone
Hear not the living children; who every day suffer and moan.
They who say only they can know
Have not hugged a child and watch it grow.
Let God honor the warriors and hero's when the body is cold
The living chldren need a peaceful time; for their story to unfold.
The poet's mind will evenually be cold and dead
Only a thougful memory will remain; of what was said.
It is the warrior's deeds of reason and purpose
God must have a special place, for those who die in service.
Who would dishonor children for their time of courage?
God to embrace them inside its love, never to discourage.
A child's time must be peaceful and sustained
Given the opportunity to contribute again and again.
An innocent one's life must be more than a single page
The creative value of its mind, must wait until the time; of reasonable age.
