Thou Shalt Not Kill - Poem by Cassandra Howell

Little ones are killed everyday
And the doctors don’t seem to care
“They’re not yet humans, ” is what they say
Just the thought, for me, is too much to bear

How do mothers go on with life?
Without the guilt of what they’ve done?
Some do, some don’t, but the shame comes with strife
And the little ones go on to live with The One

Some moms think that it’s the only way
They say they don’t have time
They don’t know they’ll someday pay
While they’re children are in eternal sublime

They hear the heart beat
Yet it still doesn’t matter
“Thou shalt not kill, ” will always defeat
And they’re hearts will painfully shatter

Life is a beautiful gift
That the Heavenly Father has given
So our voices, we should lift
And try to keep the little ones livin’

Each day, there those who fight
To make abortion against the law
And the little ones still struggle with all their might
But God knows every child because He saw them all

I still don’t see
How they don’t understand
That it’s murder and will always be
God will judge them with His mighty hand

The little ones are eternally alive
They’ll always get the better end of the deal
Their souls will forever survive
By God’s great promise and seal
