365 Snap Shots of Life Blog Challenge: Day 50

I have several muses and among them are my 4 extremely photogenic kids. Around my home I call them camera hogs, they don’t mind because it’s true. I long to have a very nice camera one day. For now, I keep using what I have. I am one of those people who is more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. One of my daughters always insists on taking my picture and I let her because she’s right in what she says,” Mama, how are we going to remember you when there are hardly any pictures of your around?” So I sigh and I let her shoot me 🙂 I wish you a happy Sunday!!

little child
dry your crying eyes
how can I explain
the fear you feel inside
cause you were born
into this evil world
where man is killing man
and no one knows just why
what we have become
just look what we have done
all that we destroyed
you must build again

when the children cry
let them know we tried
cause when the children sing
then the new world begins
