Casualty of Sin

Jesus take this bleeding child
with dime sized arms
no one wanted to carry
mourn the child as a casualty of sin

Jesus take the bleeding children
trapped inside metal and glass
mourn the 3,000
burnt inside a skyscraper womb
where there was no escape
only futility finding an exit
a casualty shorn

unable to save ourselves
as exploding planes became
our executioners

burned alive
as the baby inside a mother’s womb

every American feels pity
has shed at least a single tear
for the victims of 9/11

Jesus, help us to grieve those who have no grave
whose death has no dignity
and the grave is a mother’s open womb

Jesus help us to wail for mothers
who survive
Jesus help mothers mourn
their dead children

Jesus brand these mutilated images
sear them into our souls
crushed limbs smaller
than our hands that pray
anoint the lifeless bodies of babies
no one wanted to birth

let us condemn terrorism in all its forms
abortion doctors who break apart
the bodies of our children
when they are souls whose desire is to live.

mothers bewail the fruit of your own womb.
instead of growl

“It’s my body!”
“I can’t take care of it.”
“I won’t take care of it.”

realize you too are a casualty
the battlefield within your womb

instead of tear the fetus from our flesh
men and women in complicity
let’s not join the executioner
the abortionist performing murder
as he callously slices the fruit of the womb
of America

lift up prayer to God
let’s celebrate the lives of our children
growing inside a mother’s body,
not chained to the wall of a woman’s

Lord, remember those who chose not to die
trapped inside premature
as marauders of 9/11
forced the instruments
of destruction through the twin towers
to decapitate us

Jesus, let us not be the instruments
of anyone’s death,
no matter the size of the life
You hold all things in Remembrance
and every heartbeat we destroy
presses the penalty of sin
against the Blood of This Nation

Artist's Description

So you shall not pollute the land where you
are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement
can be made for the land, for the blood
that is shed on it, except by the blood of him
who shed it."
(Numbers 35:33)

“Abortion destroys The Image of God. It is the most terrible plague in our society, the greatest killer of love and peace. Those little children still unborn have been created for bigger things: to love and to be loved.”
Mother Teresa~

~I would say to you President Obama, I cannot vote for you because you support abortion~no matter what you say, “murder is wrong”. I will pray for you, that Almighty God will open your eyes~That He would anoint your eyes to see that murder can never be a choice for a nation that wishes to survive
