“A Voice for the Unheard”

by Cara Cone

Love of a mother abandoned! Deceived.

A life no chance to live.

No voice, no life, no liberty!

How can one pursue happiness when

Feeble life is crushed.

Indeed, the infant life suppressed,

Destroyed, unmourned, unwanted, unloved.

Such cruelty and deception,

T’would rip limb from limb.

Will such things continue?

Such evil persevere?

That infant cry unheard?

We must be their voice.
