Your Heads Held High

Children, as sweet flowers, need nourishment.
Children, as sweet flowers, need nourishment.
Our flowers need gentle raindrops.
Our flowers need gentle raindrops.
Every precious bulb has potential.
Every precious bulb has potential.
Who can know what beauty they someday  may possess.
Who can know what beauty they someday may possess.
One flower to pass it on.
One flower to pass it on.
Just look within, and hold your heads up high.
Just look within, and hold your heads up high.


Just how many children may well know,

many injustices to suffer as they grow,

their speech or hearing slows them down,

understanding is lost, with no sound?


When hard times prevail without end,

how may each child to learn, or just begin?

We must teach them to hold heads up high,

no matter if they feel as they could cry.


A Rembrandt or Beethoven may dwell inside,

great inventors for all to see, do abide.

No handicap shall make limits for those who try,

such marvels to behold by every eye.


We achieve what we conceive, by and by,

as baby birds have no doubts they can fly.

Tomorrow holds the key, and is our tie,

no single challenge, too great, or non too high.


Each soul is precious on this green earth,

deserving the best, the greatest, its worth,

Our lives are meant to live carefree and in mirth,

as sweet children do smile in their birth.

We may all soar into the heights if we only conceive.
We may all soar into the heights if we only conceive.

So true…Helen Keller's ideas may never have come to pass. Temple Grandin may never have had an effect on helping cattle stay calm when being moved. Long may intelligence live and be nurtured in whatever way is necessary.
