Athena Goddess of Wisdom Lumis Light to all


Father Forgive


Father forgive,
The hatred which divides
Nation from nation
Race from race
And class from class.

Father forgive,
The covetous desires
Of people and nations
To possess
What is not their own.

Father forgive,
Our greed which
Exploits the work,
Of human hands
And lays waste to the Earth.

Father forgive,
Our envy,
Of the welfare
And happiness
Of others.

Father forgive,
Our indifference,
To the plight
Of the imprisoned
The homeless
And the refugee.

Father forgive,
The lust which
Dishonors the bodies
Of men, women,
And children.

Father forgive,
The pride which leads us,
To trust in ourselves
And not in God.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
