UNWANTED (Sonnetina Tre for an unplanned child)


A life that’s wanted is a life that’s life.
Unwanted life? Disposable tissue.
So at what point does life become a life?
Unplanned or planned – too often the issue.

The silent scream of babies ripped apart
Is deafening to me – I can’t be still
And not express what grieves my beating heart
While theirs are halted at another’s will.

What right have we to turn a woman’s womb
Into an unplanned baby’s living tomb?

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lordas the rivers of water: He channels it where He wills.”   ~ Proverbs 21:1
