Before College: A Prayer

Sweet morning child
With eyes left sad
By twilight's dew
Rejoice at your youth
Pray to your God
For time and God
Hold all answers

This is a sweet and lovely poem and it is just the kind of sentiment that will reassure a child s/he is safe and loved ones both human and supernatural are nearby. It's so important that children are made to feel safe. However, whether grown-ups are well served by the consolations of religion is another issue.
The omniscience of God is here eloquently expressed!
