Children Of Abraham
(A Message for Moshe)

Moshe,
May you grow to understand
That all the children of Abraham
Have failed in their Father’s eyes.
Each,
By their own design,
Believe that their way to be divine
And death for those they despise.
Think
Before you retaliate.
Fail to emancipate
The hatred that you will grow into.
Peace
Must come from within
Before you can begin
To relinquish the anger that you will hold onto.
Beget
Not the pain foolish, prideful men created
As they changed your innocence, now faded.
Leaving your parents’ blood running cold.
Stop
And spread no further distress.
This cycle you must repress
When the urge to strike back takes hold.
Moshe,
Let Abraham sleep peacefully.
Do not live your life vengefully.
Remember always, but do not react.
Teach
His children and show them humanity
And perhaps someday, through your humility,
You will give them what they’ve forgotten back.

  1. Interesting.  Quite delicate.

    QuoteMoshe,
    May you grow to understand
    That all the children of Abraham
    Have failed in their Father’s eyes.

    Yes. I agree. Completely.

    QuoteEach,
    By their own design,
    Believe that their way to be divine
    And death for those they despise.

    Believe THAT?  I read it more like:

    "believe their way to be divine"

    QuoteThink
    Before you retaliate.
    Fail to emancipate
    The hatred that you will grow into.

    Yes, I agree. You’ve used the verb "emancipate" somewhat bravely, but I think I get the idea.

    QuotePeace
    Must come from within
    Before you can begin
    To relinquish the anger that you will hold onto.

    It’s true, but my quiet thought is: "Dream on!"   I’m a weathered cynic, unfortunately.  Too many wars.

    QuoteBeget
    Not the pain foolish, prideful men created
    As they changed your innocence, now faded.
    Leaving your parents’ blood running cold.
    Stop
    And spread no further distress.
    This cycle you must repress
    When the urge to strike back takes hold.

    I never got along with Pacifism. And I tried.

    QuoteMoshe,
    Let Abraham sleep peacefully.
    Do not live your life vengefully.
    Remember always, but do not react.

    That’s rather nice.

    QuoteTeach
    His children and show them humanity
    And perhaps someday, through your humility,
    You will give them what they’ve forgotten back.

    Reminds me of the song by….Crosby, Stills and Nash. ("Teach your children well")

    Good work.
