Passing The Knowledge

Poem By Kevin M. Payton

The children in the old days
they had no books to read
to tell them of the dangers
of power, wealth and greed
Children only had the knowledge
Which was passed on down the line
To help them make decisions
and educate their minds
To teach them of a wisdom
Which very few have known
To watch over and protect them
Until the day they're fully grown
To help them find the courage
And beliefs in which to share
with others who are truthful
and those who really care
In hopes that maybe someday
that they may pass along
this knowledge to their children
and teach them right from wrong....

that floats upon the wind
taking you ever closer
to a place where few have been

I hope someday all
will see what I see
The people who fall
