Matthews 19:14


May 4, 2018 by petrujviljoen

Jesus said,
”(Suffer) little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’’
– even Jesus died through callous betrayal.
(Parent)hesis mine.

To Supper, a treat unto myself
I add an extra ingredient:
A prayer for the suffering
children (mere animals)

Painstaking embroider
hang the curtain – high and proper
while calling: Mercy! Mercy!
unto me too

Nelson Mandela said:
”There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

(8 May 1995)
