Bless The Children

A Villanelle

Oh, look to the blessed children

They’ll know what to do

Light of the world, for that is their vision


They’ll be no hate or division

They’ll be the ones to carry us through

Oh, look to the blessed children


In your hearts, you have the benedictions

Every person will have inherent worth and value

Light of the world, for that is their vision


Discrimination and prejudices will be rewritten

No male or female, no master nor slave, Christian or Jew

Oh, look to the blessed children


No longer will be forced partitions

Love for all shall be imbued

Light of the world, for that is their vision


Equality and justice, with conscious volition

Their determination, tried and true

Oh, look to the blessed children

Light of the world, for that is their vision

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
