Let Our Children Grow

I have been short on Time this week, and so I am reposting one of my old poems.

I wrote this poem back in 2009, in a break at the Ocean looking on as children played in the sand, our children learn by example…. Lets set them some good foundations to Grow with. They are our future. 

Let Our Children Grow

I breathe deep breaths of salt sea air

The breeze does blow, playing with my hair

Children’s laugh and play in sand

A moment’s pause, in make-believe land.

 

As time stands still, I watch unseen

As families join this loving scene

Where sandcastles are built, with children’s smiles

The ocean is clear and smooth for miles

 

All so innocent, all so young

Unaware of life to come

Moments so precious, never to return

As memories of yesteryear I yearn.

 

A time when my children full of life

Not knowing that heartache could cut like a knife.

A time when life was simple and plain

Not knowing we each carry this pain.

 

I see so much, yet dare not tell

Shaking away dreams, I must not dwell.

So for now I freeze this moment in space

Sending out prayers for the Human Race.

 

These children whose laughter echoes in my ears

Are our future and hopes for all we hold dear.

So teach them to live, to love, and be free

We each play our part, meaning you and me.

 

Teach them to follow what lies in their heart

For material possessions we shall soon part

The values of life are not kept in the bank

For soon they will know, to the depth man has sank.

 

Disarm them with kindness, make them aware

That the future is in their hands, we need to share.

Let them know this Earth needs to heal

That All things Are possible, where nothing is real.

 

Help heal our world, Let our children grow

With knowledge of Love.. Let hatred go.

Tomorrow comes around, to those who wait

Help Our Children, Let’s not leave till too late.

      Hi Cat, it saddens me greatly that your childhood was so, my own upbringing was surrounded in violence from time to time, very turbulent,Even today I cringe at arguments, as my insides twists still at the memory.. It takes all sorts they say to make a world… But I always ask why is it so many innocent children need suffer, and I still can not comprehend how any individual could deliberately harm them, and yet still so many do…

      You are most welcome Cat, and all I do is what you also do to so many… give of your heart and say it as it is… Love you too Sister! 🙂 xxx

    Nice piece hun! 🙂

    As someone who is hated by his father who has sworn to kill me on sight, I know just what violence is inflicted on the vulnerable.

    All the kids I looked after grew up well and now my God daughter’s family look after me as I looked after them.

    Children are precious treasures that deserve our love and care.

    A pity dad didn’t understand that… 😦

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    Hi Sue, lovely to read this as I wasn’t following you when it was initially posted. A good idea, generally, I think to bring some old posts back for all those new followers (or even relatively new ones.) As always, beautiful words and sentiments Sue. xx

      They say David great minds think alike… One thing I have found recently as we connect here on WP is how often our minds are being guided towards similar themes as the Universe unfolds its own themes for us to take up and spread around our world.. 🙂 Hope you are well also… Love and Light ~Sue

    A wonderful poem Sue. So true. Time with our children is so precious and gets more precious as they get older and so do we of course. I hope you’re okay. It’s a great idea to post an older poem as it gives new readers a chance to enjoy it. .:)

      Yes many children are full of wonder and I hope that they can stay like that.. So many harsh realities to face in growing up in todays world.. I pray especially for those in places already torn apart by discord and hope that they are the ones to bring peace to their homelands… Thank you Christy for your encouragement … 🙂

    words of wisdom dwell within your poem Sue…
    and now as they take flight…may they fall on open hearts to hear
    one can see you sitting on the beach, arms wrapped around your knees taking in the breath of the moment as it continues to breathe into the tomorrows of your thoughts…
    Take Care…You Matter Sue..

      For this poem I think thats how it came too.. I sat and pondered upon the scenes before me, each family wrapped within their own particular bubbles each so precious… And my thoughts went out to the world… May each family forever be within their bubbles held together with Love.. xox Many thanks for your words, you always leave me with a feeling of I did something right. And that is very precious to me… Thank you xox Sue

      Thank you dear Doda for reading the whole poem.. I wrote that on the beech, thinking of how innocent we are when children, and how each of us are influenced.. And how vulnerable many are.. I may only plant a small seed, by brining awareness within my poems.. but if I but make one person think twice, then I am working with the Light to bring awareness, so that more can join in and in doing that, the more who bring Light, the brighter the world is illuminated.. 🙂 We can only all Hope enough of us care.. xx
