That's an extremely poignant poem.
It would be an important insert into
many a school's year book/Literary Magazine,
although I think admin and parents might take exception.
How many young lives have gone down this road?
How many poor, innocent babes have born the brunt of this emotion?
And yet, if only they could get past the error of their day
and embrace the child as a challenge and a gift from Him on high.
For, it's not the babe who was at fault,
and as the cliche' goes,
there's no sense crying over spilt "milk".
"til time to meet the challenges of the new dawning day
and not exact toll from each other, claiming they must pay.
And do what you must for the creation of your love
for there was more there than simple lust.
