Weep for the children
who are born into this world;
a world of seething hatred,
aimed at this poor little boy and girl.
You say you want someone to love
and you need an innocent child.
Take a look at the world around you.
What was paradise is now, defiled.
Think again about what you want
and what it is you are about to do.
You are pounded by the force of hate.
Is this what you want for your child too?
This is not about Planned Parenthood
and abortion was not on my mind.
I just see that innocence is doomed,
thanks to the evil that is mankind.

I am not trying to tell anyone what to do. I am merely stating that if it were up to me, I could not bring an innocent child into this mess. I just could not. And seriously, take a look around. What do you see? Wars, hatred, ignorance, bigotry, genocide, murder, lust, STDs, avarice, homelessness, mass incarceration, mass water shut-offs, poisoned water, millions of refugees, radiated oceans, dying sea life, climate change, rising seas; a world teetering on the brink of war. How in the ‘world’ could I ever think of bringing a child into this? I weep for the children.

It’s unimaginable living in a society that has so little concern for future generations.
Indeed, it is Dr. Bramhall. And still we think it a wonder to bring forth a ‘new’ life into this; chaos, pandemonium and bedlam!
I thank you for your comment.
It is unconsionable to bring another being into this world we’ve so polluted. You want a child? Save one already suffering and desperate for care.

Hear! Hear! You are ever so spot on! I am SO very glad that you put it out there that we don’t even care for the ones who are already here. I just read that a hungry child begged a man to let him carry his groceries for him in exchange for food. So, then why are we continuing to bring children into this world when those who are here are in desperate need? We should not!
Again, I thank you so very much for that spot on comment!
