Birth and early parenting educators

Hold your womb
In your lovingly curved
and sensuous arms
Hold your womb
To your heart
And show me
How much tenderness
You hold within.
Show them you are the Mother of the Human race
By the way you smile
to a child tenderly
By the way you caress
her hair caringly
By the way you look tenderly Into the little boy’s eyes.
For this little boy
Will soon become a man.
Show him how infinite
Is your unconditional Love.
So he can not
But cherish a woman
And hold her in a sacred manner close to his heart and manhood. You are the mother of future generations!
Show your little girl
how to nurture and console and cuddle
and caress and giggle
So that she can truly hold her man.
So that in turn he knows
Killing is not the way
Raping is not the way
So that he protects and cherishes all beings
Alive with his gorgeous strong body.
So that he knows he will only save Our Race
Through the immense true power
of his gentleness.
Woman, be a mother to the women,
Be a mother to the men, Because they are so hurt
That they hurt.
