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

    Loved the contrast, beautifully written

  • That is absolutely beautiful, Mathias. Thank You. 🙂

  • Von Smith says:

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

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

  • Patty says:

    Profound, Mathias.

  • Karen Kan says:

    Your poem is really well-written. It took me a long while to realise that fighting against my fear would only make it grow bigger and swallow me whole. It’s love which is the key to soothe my emotions.
