Four days ago, I’d promised you all that the next poem I’d be posting on this blog would be more light-hearted than the one I’d posted that day. Luckily, I am able to keep that promise, for today, I have here to share with you a little Shakespearean sonnet that ties in to my latest book, Dream Roamers: Tyler’s Journey. Without further ado, then, here’s Kids Need…
January 8, 2014
Kids need morals and values to which they
Can adhere to as they move forth in life—
Rules and wisdom to guide them day by day
So that they can grow to face future strife.
Kids need heroes, too. That’s a given fact—
People to look up to and believe in,
An example to follow in times black
When all else around them proves deceivin’.
In turn, by living by their morals fair,
Kids can succeed in life and continue
The nurturing of the world, and from there,
Become heroes themselves when our time’s through,
And from there, the healing cycle will go
On in hopes of purging this world of woe.
And there you have it—my “Poem of the Week” for this week. Thank you all for stopping by, and please come back next week for yet more poetry and hopefully even my first “In Relation to My Work” article for 2014. In the meantime, I’d like to offer a shout-out to my latest follower, ContraCritic, and as always, folks, happy reading!
