Crying baby

BY JUDY ALCIATORE

HE MOVES THROUGH THE MIST
OF MY DREAMS
CALLING TO ME
AS HE CRIES

HE MOVES IN AND OUT
OF MY DREAMS
CALLING TO ME
THOUGH HE DIED

MAMA, WHAT DID YOU DO
WHY DID YOU SEND ME AWAY
MAMA, I WAS PART OF YOU
I WAS MEANT TO BE YOURS ALWAYS

NOW HE MOVES THROUGH THE GRIEF
IN MY SOUL
CALLING TO ME
FROM ON HIGH

MAMA, WHAT DID YOU DO
WHY DID YOU WANT ME TO DIE

THANK YOU, LORD

IF WE DO NOT FIGHT..

 

A dear Facebook friend,  Judy Alciatore  has been inspired by God to remind us that He is depending on us to stand up and fight for His precious little ones.  Let’s remember that our weapons are spiritual in nature.  Our prayers, sacrifices and public witness are the weapons we need to fight against the forces of evil in our land. 
 
Life
by Judy Alciatore
IF WE DO NOT FIGHT
THEN TELL ME, WHO WILL
SHALL WE BE IDLE
SHALL OUR VOICES BE STILL

IF WE DO NOT STAND
DO WE THEN LEND OUR AID
WHY WON’T YOU LEAD
ARE YOU TRULY AFRAID

THE KILLING IS REAL
CAN YOU NOT FEEL EACH BLOW
CAN YOU NOT HEAR THE CRIES
CAN’T YOU SEE THE BLOOD FLOW

WE MUST DO OUR PART
EVEN IF OUR WORDS FAIL
WE MUST TRY TO SAVE
ALL THE WEAK AND THE FRAIL

WHEN WE FACE GOD IN HEAVEN
WHEN HE ASKS THIS OF YOU
WHAT SHALL YOU TELL HIM
WHEN HE ASKS, WHAT DID YOU DO

DID YOU TRY TO PROTECT
DID YOU SPEAK LOUD AND CLEAR
DID YOU STAND AT THE FOREFRONT
OR COWER IN FEAR

IF WE DO NOT FIGHT
THEN TELL ME, WHO WILL
FOR YOU KNOW THAT SATAN
WILL NEVER BE FILLED

HE WILL WANT THE KILLING
TO GO ON AND ON
HE WILL WANT THE SACRIFICE
‘TIL ALL INFANTS ARE GONE

THE DESTRUCTION OF MAN
IS WHAT SATAN SEEKS
CAN YOU NOT SMELL THE EVIL
HOW IT ROTS, HOW IT REEKS

IF WE DO NOT FIGHT
IF WE DO NOT STAND
THEN TERROR AND PLIGHT
WILL COVER THE LAND

WILL YOU FIGHT?
THANK YOU, LORD

 GOD IS SPEAKING TO US ALL…LISTEN FOR HIS VOICE…HE IS CALLING EACH OF US TO DO OUR PART…IF WE DO NOT ANSWER HIS CALL, THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY, MAKE NO MISTAKE…

Ode to Abortion: Poeticizing Death

The following is from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation LifeLines Newsletter  by Bonnie Finnerty who is the Education Director of the Federation.

Ode to Abortion

In my past life as an English teacher, I encouraged students’ playful experimentation with language. Words matter, I told my students.  Words stir emotions, illuminate a truth, even persuade a foe.  Poetry and prose possess power.

Yet, words can be used for more malevolent purposes.  They might not illuminate, but darken and distort. They can minimize, romanticize, even glorify that which is ugly, violent, and evil. Words can be used to manipulate those who hear them.

No one knows this better than the pro-abortion wordsmiths.

They have poeticized abortion, luring many with polished vocabulary and rhythmic phrases that seek to dull senses and numb protestations.

Their “ode” to abortion goes something like this:

The right to choose is a private decision between a woman and her doctor and an integral part of her reproductive freedom and health care. The termination of a pregnancy is a safe procedure that empties the pregnancy tissue from the uterus and is a Constitutionally protected right.

Sounds almost harmless. Until you scratch through the lexicon’s shiny veneer.

Deconstruct this abortion “poem” phrase by phrase, and the blaring truth is a cacophony that pierces our conscience.  READ FULL ARTICLE

Below is another amazing poem by Judy Alciatore, a Facebook friend who graciously shares her divinely inspired poems with us to post on our blog.  Her words  should make us all ponder what more we can do to end the evil of abortion in our country and in our world.

 

an angel

By Judith Alciatore

 

THE ANGELS ROCK HIM AS HE SLEEPS AND SING A LULLABY 

THIS CHILD OF GOD WHO NEVER WEEPS AND UTTERS NOT ONE CRY 

HE SLUMBERS ON IN PEACEFUL DREAMS AN INFANT SOUL ONCE BOUND

BUT EARTHLY TIES RIPPED AT THE SEAMS ARE LAID INTO THE GROUND 

NO MOTHER, HE NO FATHER, YET THIS CHILD OF PASSIONS BENT 

THOUGH WANTED NOT HIS FATE WAS SET TO HEAVEN HE WAS SENT 

AND NOW THE ANGELS HOVER O’ER HIS CRADLE IN THE SKY 

FOR HE IS LOVED BY CHRIST THE LORD WITH GOD, HE’LL NEVER DIE 

THANK YOU, LORD

Rose Petals

Rose petals on the ground

by Judith Alciatore

They pull the petals from the rose

With hearts of steel and stone

Not caring how the flower grows

For it is not their own

One by one, with practiced pride

They crush the flower’s head

Regarding not the life inside

The mother’s flower bed

Now the flower fades and dies

In silent agony

Only God will hear the cries

of spirits soon to be

Fragile flowers of our hearts

To Heaven you are bound

In memory as your souls depart

Rose petals on the ground

 

This poem came to me after the first time I saw pictures of aborted babies. God took the horror and grief I felt and gave me these Words. Thank You, Lord.
