Voices Rise


source


The children have no fear to speak

Their voices rise above the grief

that cuts us low and makes us meek

but children have no fear to speak

Our honesty is all they seek

Just listening provides relief

The children have no fear to speak

Their voices rise above the grief.

A problem shared is a problem cut in half, so they say, and I believe it.

smiles...i agree...its a gift and responsibility to have children...and we play a huge part in shaping who they will be in how we talk to them...
