UNLOVED AND UNWANTED An embryo is being formed, in silence taking place.* And then is heard, the word “Abort”, what heard … was no mistake. What child wants to be dismembered, in the garbage be thrown? Sadly unloved and unwanted, by God only … is known. *April 12, 2022 copyright Contest: 22 Poetry Marathon 21 Sponsor: Mark Toney* Psalm 139” 16 “You know me through and through, from having watched my bone stake shape. when I was being formed in secret, knitted together in the limbo of the womb (The Jerusalem Bible)

Barbara I have read a lot of your poems. I really like this one and was touched by it. Never fear to speak on abortion. It is of Satin and no different than what was happing in the days of Nimrod and the false god Moloch. They just make it seem innocent today.

Patrick, Thank you for saying, "never fear to speak:. I a glad you were aware children were sacrificed to Moloch, made to go through the fire. I am trying to be very courageous in poems I am writing for a book. Thank you so much for your support. May I soup mail you a question? Not sure how to do this.

Such a sad, sad poem Barbara, thank you for writing this. I am blessed with adopted children. I celebrate that they were birthed and filled my waiting arms with their sweet presence. I once had a doctor who did abortions for years until he saw an ultrasound of a baby during his/her abortion, the doctor never did another abortion after that. I've seen pictures of babies who were aborted, TRAGIC.

I agree it's sad. Shows no respect for God's laws or for life. I can't believe I have the courage to type such a poem. I hope it makes people think of what a horrible sin to commit. Glad you adopted your children, what a loving person you must be. Thanks for visiting.
