Made of Clay

A poem about us humans. Love and care for each other helps us to build ourselves beautifully. However, harshness and hatred can only break a person into something dark and miserable.
poem Made of Clay

A fine creation
Humans made of clay

Nourished with love
If not, they go astray

A gracious and kind touch
Griefs whittle away

Their hearts harmonized
With joy, sing and play

Harsh and stern try not to be
For they might lead to stray

Denied of affection
Their souls’ decay

As the warmth of the sun
Hardens the clay…
