Steel'd was that soul and by no misery mov'd That from a father seiz'd his babe belov'd: Such, such my case. And can I then but pray Others may never feel tyrannic sway? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You can watch more GoodPoetry videos on GoodPoetry's YouTube Channel and on Teyuna Darris' YouTube channel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You can listen to more GoodPoetry episodes at Stitcher, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Anchor.FM, and other major podcast platforms. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Connect with GoodPoetry (@itsgoodpoetry) and Teyuna Darris (@tdarris) on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
