Aborted

 

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.
