The Laws - Poem by AHO Speaks

I am filled with anquish and sorrow by what I heard and saw
That human destruction be approved by passing a law
We have the law to end a life before it begins
To terminate life will only add to the sins.

The circle complete upon termination at birth
By passage of laws to determine a human beings worth
Laws are subject to interpretation and often mis-used
Who will determine if the act is not being abused?

A human being should have dignity before they die
But ask not another nor the reason why
For the value of human life this is not a good sign
As the decision is God's first and then thine.

Go to your God with your anquish and sorrow
Ask you be lifted today and not tomorrow.
