Poetry: Tomorrow’s Child

Poetry

Jeevan Bhagwat has written two poetry books: The Weight of Dreams and Luminescence.


Tomorrow’s Child

Come child
let me teach you peace
for you know too much
of war and despair,
too much
of hunger and pain.

Let me teach you
how to love again,
that one day
you will have the strength
to shield your heart
from hate.

Let me teach you
how to trust again,
that one day
you will not place faith
in those who preach
with guns.

Come child
and embrace tomorrow,
for the dream of
peace
lives in you.
