Should be one of growth and joy
Not a baby's tomb

    a good one for the abortion issue, Robert. I just want to thank you again for appreciating the work I put into that betrayal story. Though I'm not using it in the contest, that is beside the point. I LOVE how these contests simply inspire us to WRITE!! dont you?? (too bad we ddin't even really know about videos in the 60's so I could have got a tape of my mom clapping. hahaha)

    If everyone realized the simplicity of truth in these three short lines, there would be no abortion. Well done my friend. Mac

    Such a powerful write! in so few words--you made such a statement--hopefully more people realize this as well...thanks a swell for your comments on my poetry :)

    If more people read things like this, I think it'd be more difficult to agree with abortion rights... This just leaves you with a deep dark, somber feeling... and I'm pro-choice, so you've done this very nicely. =P
