I wish I could block their eyes from seeing it. I’d shield them all.
I wish I could cover their ears and protect them from the lies that spread like wildfire. I’d shield them from the darkness of this world.
I’d cover them with my arms and serenade them with words of life, comfort, and healing.
I’d help every child live a pure, youthful, innocent life. Their eyes would be bold and their roar striking. Their smiles forever vibrant. Their laughter’d echo in the airwaves filling the atmosphere with joy. They’d live a prosperous life.
Ooohhh…. but I find ways.
To be the home for the child that feels homeless. The shelter for the girl who innocence was robbed. The mother to a son who became a man too soon. For the jokester who laughs to cover his open wounds. The voice for the one too afraid to speak.
I am their peace while they are in my possession. For in that moment, they are mine.
They are my children with no limits. My offspring with bright and glorious futures. They shine like the sun. Gleaming like the sun. And smile like the Son. This is Paradise.
Look at life with the eyes of a child. Kathe Kollwitz
This poem is inspired by my desire and efforts to end the exposure of children to pornography and sexual immorality.
