This Mother's Heart!

My soul prays not for victory;
I beg open and unashamed
for the healing of souls,
making no need for war!

A scream of agony sears as
it rips though the soul.
Another echoes back from the
opposite side of the world.

Their mother's heart rips, bleeds;
Tears spill the blood of their soul.
Their beloved children gone....
No longer to be held to their breast


The smell of their hair and skin
wafting upward as the milk of
life is exchanged!

The first smile...the one that lights
the world and changes night to day

The tiny fingers wrapping around fingers,
tethering to the heart. A bond never to be
broken even in death.

So many dreams..now never to be fulfilled


Real human issues...both sides.
Desperate needs, anger, mistrust,prejudice

Greed of nations, egocentric leaders,
using the life blood of our sons and
daughters to rip this bountiful world
of ours apart for their own desires


We are ones who know the REAL price to be paid
It is within the feelings of our hearts a solution can be found!
Please, just try....for the children..

Mothers of the world..

Go, Cecilia! Makes me want to cry and scream. I agree - we need to do something as no one really wins a war, do they?
