BABIES.

Hiding in the womb, 
snugly, warm and fed - 
Yet even inside there, 
humanity's sin can cast a cloud...
Yet each and every one, 
it must be said,
Could 'fly like an eagle' 
IF allowed!

Babies conceived in anger, 
learning to live in fear,
When angry voices 
reach their tiny, fragile ears!
Babies conceived unwanted, 
rejected before seeing the light of day,
Ignored, starved of affection in their 'nests', 
no one asks for their say!
Babies conceived in error, 
not 'planned' can be a shock,
Some are accepted as a Blessing 
not a block!
Babies conceived in love and hope,
Are halfway up the mountain slope!

Babies helpless, 
with souls and spirits so easily bruised,
Come into the world - 
for some life's choices are already refused.
Babies are here to learn how 'fly' fully and free,
Here at the mercy of YOU AND ME!
Babies should be accepted as they are,
Not rejected for damaged minds, bodies, or looks, 
that SEEM to mar.
Babies born every single day -
Each one so fragile and precious - 
should have a happy stay!

Babies grow into children, 
each one with a future unknown,
Some are forced to leave the 'nest' 
before their 'feathers' have grown.
Babies of every shade 
throughout the world,
Many grow into children 
at the mercy of satan's banner unfurled.
Babies grow into children - 
who grow into adults ultimately,
The wheel of life turns - 
and for some - continues tragically!
Babies conceptions - 
however they come about -
Need not be the end of the story, 
each one can have a victory shout!

EVERY BABY...
EVER CONCEIVED...
HAS ITS PLACE...
IN THE HEART OF GOD...
CREATED IN HIS MIND...
NEVER REJECTED... CAREFULLY THOUGHT ABOUT!
