A child is God’s opinion that the world should go on

Expanding on Carl Sandburg’s quote “A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on.” and my tagline…

Disasters, calamities, self afflicted and God sent,

Weapons and igniting war, tons of money is spent

Among the ashes of war and hatred a child is born,

A child is God’s opinion that the world should go on.

No prejudices, no jealousies, no regrets, no hating,

A gift from God, a bundle of love, a sweet belonging,

Starting anew, as pure as an angel, each child is born,

A child is God’s opinion that the world should go on.

What if it was not fashionable anymore to procreate?

Would the world go on another day or just decimate

Let’s renew the blessings that a child brings us upon

A child is God’s opinion that the world should go on.

  1. It is a hard world. Been hard many times. Depression, World wars and change in leadership. I agree with your logic. We must do the best we can and hope our children can do better. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on a important matter. Children.

  2. I’ve never thought of it that way. Though the world is a confusing, cruel, hard place sometimes, I never question anyone’s desire to bring a child into it. Perhaps that child will be the one who makes a difference for the better. 🙂

    • A child with all its innocence brings a fresh start to this world a chance to redo what was done wrong. It’s as if God were saying you can have another go.
