Our children are our future.......
teach them compassion, unconditional love, tolerance and non-violence... to love and not hate...

Hear the pitter-patter
of little feet;
Laughter and glee
In their hearts it's just love so sweet 
A joy to see,

Just two children
Playing with joy
that precious brown girl
and the
Little white boy.

Innocent minds know no color
Play together like
Sister and brother;
just two that have
A different mother..

Then suddenly
yes, secretly..
Some fathers, see,
Start teaching thee
that white is right and
Black you get back..

Say, what the heck?
What kind of message is that?
Why don't they know
That hate is so
No way to grow!

Even children know
Hate ain't the way to go!
An innocent mind
can change
If we seek to find
a world that's kind.

Hold onto faith
We can change
the human race
One child
at a time.
And, it could be
So sublime!

And we are ALL created in his likeness! Such power in your words. If we teach love...they will know love. A very special poem you have written and I wish it to be published where all can see. Possibly printed on cards...then given to each new parent as they leave the hospital with their new babies!

This is one of my favorites from Embracing Candace. You say so much in this poem. Powerfully written. Never give up hope.

I am an optimist, believing that if we teach our children what we want to see in the world, it will happen. Thank you for understanding and appreciating this poem.

Beautiful message sent in a precious poem. Ignorance will corrupt the innocent unless we do and act on it immediately with intervention and wisdom. Loved the soft flow and imagery. Well done.
Hugs, Laura

So beautiful with messages for all to see and learn. So very light as a feather floating down from the heavens.....

Be safe,
