Departed Against Her Will

Tiny, unwanted
Sinless, innocent
Little fetus, departed
From her mother's womb.

She will cry no more
Giggle and laugh no more
Play and dance no more
Live and grow no more.

She was put to rest prematurely
Went back to dust forlornly 
She will never see the light of this world
And see the beauty of it all.

She will no longer feel the love of her mother
Or have the chance to know her real father
She can no longer make her mother happy
Or make her father proud of her.

Poor, guiltless, pitiful little fetus
She was not given the chance to live
To prove her worth or gift
For she was so helpless and was forced
To depart from her mother's womb.

  36. What a sad poem...but some people don't care and continue their bad habits, don't they?

  37. Oh yes, Ami, I am a believer in every word in your sad little poem. It is wonderfully written about a pititful situation.

    I haven't thought much about this problem for almost a month now. I think the last time was when I passed the Crisis Pregnancy Center on the Freeway. Mrs. Jim and I visited there when it opened.

  38. One good thing about this. God still loves these little children and will welcome them to his Home with open arms.

    God loves all his children. We must pray for the mother that she will find the way to be Home with God as well when she is finished on this earth. God will forgive her if she asks.

  39. Patti;

    yeah, and that's the reason i felt so sad writing about this...

    was thinkin how they could do such thing!

  40. Jim;

    yes, it is so prevalent especially in teenagers...

    i felt so sad thinking how the could bravely kill an innocent baby and also those accomplices in the deed should get their dues, too!

    Hope God will forgive anyone doing this.

    Good night Jim. It's evening here in the Phils.
