Boy George Hodan
George Hodan

Teach them the truth

Truth of the feminine

Feminine power elevates

Elevates all humanity

Humanity needs strength

Strength of the masculine

Masculine gentleness

Gentleness honoring women

Women will bring peace

Peace will save all men

Men spring from boys

Boys must be taught kindness

Kindness will end the cycle of violence

Violence against women must end

Prompt From:

Poets United Banner
Poets United

“Breaking the cycle of violence 

against women and girls.  Stopping violence altogether.

Today, I am thinking of the ones who 

don’t survive.  Of the ones who do.

 Of surviving  huge violence and 

violence others might perceive 

as small.   I want to write,  but how 

to take one event and emotion

 from among so many that 

stuff up our mouths?  


Your challenge: Speak about survival so that others may listen.  Write a new poem because that is what we do. “~Susan

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Yes, I think it has to start with the young boys. If young boys grow up with feelings of respect for girls and women, it would go a long way, I think. We have to try. The world definitely has to try! The cycle of violence has to end.

  2. if boys can respect women, they can learn to truly respect themselves. in a number of native cultures the power to declare war was given to councils of women.
