Angel

Post by jmflash » Sun May 16, 2004 6:42 am

Fresh, green grass
Encased in packed, clean earth.
Walking with light steps
Your feet made no impressions now
Nor have since birth.

With a past clean and
A future more open than the sky.
The vast array of glorious scenes
That will be seen
By your innocent eyes.

Angel with such delicate features-
As fragile as a doll.
Soft skin and a gentle face
You are a miracle
Which made it here somehow.

Stand firm against the hard times
As a flower in the rain.
Let time spread your dreams
Like wind blowing leaves
To a flat plain.

The road may get steep or long but
Keep your head staring at the sky.
You’ll never get discouraged by the terrain
If you believe that
You can fly.

Child you are our reason;
You are our end.
Blessed be high heaven
And the angels
That it sends.

We go through life uncertain
Traveling so unsure.
Child be our teacher
You lack in knowledge but
Have wisdom which is pure.

You know the answers
You do not go chasing after air.
There is no conflict in you
You do not grasp for
That which is not there.

very beautiful Jm,

that one's my favourite:

The road may get steep or long but
Keep your head staring at the sky.
You’ll never get discouraged by the terrain
If you believe that
You can fly.

or this line:

A future more open than the sky

and many others...

Take care,

Arno

Dear JM ~

An incredibly beautiful tribute to a particular, beloved child ~ and to all children, everywhere. May I please have permission to use this in gift-giving to children [accrediting it to you, of course]. You've captured the truths of children. To isolate my favourite lines :D would become quite repetitive of your poem :wink: ~ really fine work, JM 8) .

~ Elizabeth

Thanks Liz, sure you can use the poem and you do not need to credit me because all the words have been used before, I just shuffled them in a certain order. Also thanks to you and Witty Owl for showing some compassion and open-mindedness on the News Forum. I don't know if you saw, but the US has just put sanctions on Syria a few weeks ago. If the EU follows suit than that makes me very afraid. In Iraq it wasn't the war that destroyed the country, it was the decade long sanctions. Peace be unto all.

Thanks, JM, but the credit you'll get, even so......even though I understand what you're saying :wink:

Oh dear, the madness continues. Sanctions = the passive-aggressive reality that war = war = war. The white-glove trick doesn't change it. The whole of everything is so gnarled. The prison abuse; Nicholas Berg's horrific death; the mounting of innocent civilian's deaths within the span of a year ~ on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on.

Not pursuing these realities in the "War is Hell" thread has been to look beyond the elephant stomping around in the living room, but I have to believe that those who so strongly opposed my and some others' positions are coming to realize that we were not so far off regarding the nature of war; the 'advisability' of rushing into this one; and the highly-questionable motives of the perpetrators. For me, everything has become so painfully obvious as to make commenting purely superfluous.
