silent scream
by the crucified

from mother's womb
to garbage can
the little children die
although they never
took a breath
those babies were alive
the infants are sucked
through a tube
the murder goes unseen
does only God
and my heart
hear the babies silent scream?

capitol punishment
for the innocent
it's not justified
should we kill
a two year old
if he keeps us up at night?
the saline salts injected
and the baby melts away
can you hear the silent scream
the baby wants to stay

is all human life worthless now
or is that just how it seems?
does only God and my heart
hear the baby's silent scream?
