NOT BORN IN SIN Poem by Christina C Sunrise

Russian family running for their lives
jumps over barbwire Russian fence
they don't get stuck-fence is sharp as a knife.
Only baby gets stuck with her wrap
Bolshevik soldiers show up
Russian family is scared off their ____.
One Bolshevik soldier soul is wise
He gives other soldier his rifle-
let's little baby and Russian family survive.
In barbwire fence soldier does go-
He rescues baby and instantly is not a foe.
Russian family goes to America where freedom prevails
Bob their grandson is born who hears of this tale.
I heard it today and had tears in my eyes
We humans are not 'born in sin' or 'evil'
this Bolshevik soldier was a good guy
and proved this judgment otherwise.
