This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO


O! For my daughters!

Freedom out of the ash rises,
O! For my children, she rises;
Kindness and love and joy and life.

Where shall they walk, I pray?
Who, I ask, will light their way?
What shall I leave them?

O! For my daughters!

For them war seems so far away;
A whispered word of grown-up shadows
As they play under the bright eyes of the sun.

When, I ask, will they first see it?
What, will they think of me;
That I did not try to stop war’s reach?

O! For my daughters;

Serenity must smile upon their children.
Freedom out of my hands must soar!
For my daughters, for their innocence!

O! For them I say, “To hell with war!”
