A Baby's View Of Abortion - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

I came as tomorrow
Swaddled in innocence
To your warm womb
Mother……
Without your choice
Or mine
Destined to up date
With time
Our human tree
But before love
Grew into flesh and words
What is unfinished creation-
A precipitation of blood
Became my transcendence.

    I clearly see, you are pro life the exact same way as yours truly. Where would we be right now if our own mothers decided to abort us? In heaven, of course, but not on earth. Terrific poems! (Report) Reply

    While I think the poem definitely takes sides Bri (swaddled in innocence is certainly a loaded phrase) . Even the Bible says that all men (and babies) are born sinners and that God's love is all that saves us, not any innate innocence. And oh yes we all die too. Without an immortal soul does anyone really transcend anything? Are we not all unfinished creations yoonoos? (Report) Reply

    A baby formed by uncaring parents who have an abortion
    Never becomes a conscious life form outside the mothers body we think, or know a babies mind
    Any moron of a man can carry the seed, any moron of a woman can conceive, , it's no great skill parenthood

    I like that this poem doesn't appear to take sides; it is just an imaginative and powerful of the act.

    this is not a word i use or am very familiar with:

    tran·scend·ence
    ˌtran(t) ˈsendəns/
    noun
    noun: transcendence; plural noun: transcendences; noun: transcendency

    existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level.
    the possibility of spiritual transcendence in the modern world
    synonyms: excellence, supremacy, incomparability, matchlessness, peerlessness, magnificence; rare paramountcy
    the transcendence of love
    ======================================

    i don't believe in God. Rini (below) mentions brutality of mankind. seems to me, from my youth as a church-goer, that God was pretty brutal at times, and He/She/It [if in fact H/S/I existed/exists] did allow
    mankind to be brutal at times.

    the idea that life is 'sacred' is not one i share with you undoubtedly.

    maybe abortion is God's will. maybe God noticed the mistake made by getting one set of parents
    pregnant. so God decided to allow/cause an abortion (or miscarriage, or stillborn birth, or childhood disease
    or accident) to 'take' the baby and place it into another womb where it might have a better chance for a 'good
    life'! ! ! !

    but, except for the word transcendence, i think the poet made his point.

    Too often, a blood sacrifice to the great god Convenience.
    Your work is pure poetry, Yoonoos! - and profoundly meaningful.
