A Home of Love

I watched a movie last night 
where Denmark was fighting 
against Prussia 
using body parts in canons

To devastate the enemy
infection and disease 
spreading through
the enemies ranks

When will people 
learn to live in peace
when will people learn
to treat each other as brothers

A girl got pregnant
to one of the soldiers
Her mother threatened
to kick her out

Children make mistakes
children find love
sometimes with the wrong people
yet they are your children

If my child got pregnant
I would not turn my back
I would not kick her out
I would not make her suffer

We would make 
room in the house 
for a new baby
and encourage the mother

To further her education
to gain financial independence
to build a life 
for herself and her baby

Granted children need parents
but sometimes things happen
my children would always
have a home
