The Silent Cry

Her womb, no longer

A safe home for her child

A victim in that time,

Cries a silent cry and

In fear, he dies


As the invader mercilessly

Reaches out to him

Denying his right

Of the gift of life

He fights with all his might


By moving away

From the weapon

Of death in his short space

Until hopelessly

He dies in the hands of a doctor


Trained to save lives.

Evicted from his home

And forced out of the world

He will never see

Its light of day


His future, a thing of naught

Decided by his mother

Who will stand before His Creator

To give Him an account

Of the life of her child


That child could have been

The holy child in Mary’s womb

Uncertain and fearful

Of her world

For being a single mother.


But Mary stood the test

Of faith and carried

Her child to the end

Giving humanity

The Savior


A mother, who once

A child in the womb

Of her mother has

Denied life to her

Own child


Who was knitted together

And wonderfully created

By God the Author of life

With a future He determined

Before his birth,


Will have to answer why

When she stands before Him

Guilty as charged

To justify her action

In that space of time


Nothing is surer my friend

To a death of a nation

Than that of a child

Being denied his right

To life.
