To truly love a child

I have lost the child

Of a lonely man

Not in an accident nor war

A suffering psyche of scar

Has lost peace to seed

Fear’s possessive greed

Of a mother’s doubt what could be

If she were free

To truly love


I have won the children

Of all world’s men

Not by fighting back to win

A loving heart within

Has found peace to share

Forgiveness to take care

Of a father’s knowing what can be

Because he’s free

To truly love

    language from the heart is never complex because it needs no thinking, only feeling. Inspired

  7. Very soundly put. Fear so often negates any love a person might feel; whilst certitude confirms love for all humanity.
