Muffled Cry

Everyone gets to choose,
The magic word is “choice”.
Only the defenseless lose, 
Wombs muffle their voice.

    So glad I found this Robert, you are such an amazing soul; with so few words you point out one of life's greatest tragedies.

    Super piece here Robert. I totally agree. Someone has to speak out and protect those who cannot protect themselves. Too many people around who would love to have a baby and can't so if you don't want it give it to someone who does. Don't Kill It! That's Murder! Great job. God Bless, JB

    I've written a lot, really a lot - several novels and chapbooks, thousands of poems short stories, but, at my age, (82) publishing is too long a process. I'm retired, and publishing is too much like work. Thanks for reading my stuff. Love, daver

    I got babies - right? Some say unborn babies have a choice of who their parents may be. Damned if I know. Enjoyed figuring this one out. LOve, daver
