About the Poem

"Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it". Those are truly wise words. Can we make a difference for the future? Perhaps - by being aware of the ramifications of the lessons we impart to our children. And praying that they, in turn, will do the same.

We Are The Light (a Sonnet)

A world of hope in an expectant look,
As multitudes' pedantic blinded eyes,
In staunch refute of anecdotal book
Ingeminate historic harrowed cries.

Our children see with undefiled sense -
Their hearts and minds novitiate, our charge.
The future's cast of tenets' existence;
The time is nigh, malignity to purge.

Our ventures now each fledgling's discipline,
Whence we endow, mankind's forever gained.
Hereafter molds society's doctrine;
Eternally our lessons lie ingrained

Our vision now bestows the blind with sight.
We are the world - its beacon and its light.
