Today we spotlight his original poem entitled Future Descendants
Future DescendantsA long distance from maturity
A baby child, dead, aborted, murdered
Before she, he, could ever gaze into the universes eyes
Before it could shed tears of purity and innocence
An unnamed soul crossing into the gates of heaven
The parents had a list full of dreams on what it could fulfill
What name it should live by
The seed never even sprouted passed the filthy dirt to sulk in graceful sunlight
It remained in sinful darkness
Only feeling the worms crawling on its harmless flesh that would soon consume its carcass
Like the roots, it remained underground
As the hands of this world swiftly unearthed the decayed sapling
Replanting it inside of the forest of life where lumberjacks can no longer cut off its breathing supply.
So I ask, when an innocent child dies, do you?
Or are our future descendants unimportant to you?
