Potential GoneMature

I wrote this after reading this article: http://themattwalshblog.com/2014/04/23/aborted-babies-are-being-incinerated-to-provide-electricity-in-the-united-states/
If you read it first, it will give you some background on what I'm talking about.

This world is sick.

It’s falling to pieces around me,

And it seems sometimes that no one cares.

I hear you bragging that we are so advanced,



We know so much more than we did before.

But what use are things to keep us alive,

If we throw life away,

Before babies have a chance to live?

And after we tear their potential from this world,

Take their lives from them,

What do we do?

We use them for fuel.

It makes me sick,

That humans are equated with firewood and coal.

Not only do we commit murder,

But we use the bodies for power,

To do it again.

Every one of those babies had potential,

They would have had dreams.


A family,

Doing something to improve the world around them,

Lives that would have touched others,

That will never be known.

The End
