A poetical Conviction

In response to a conversation that I had at work about the issue of abortion, I thought I would post a poem that I had written many years ago. I have never experienced an abortion, but I cannot imagine living with myself if I had. This poem is perhaps a visualization of what I would have to live with if I would ever choose that option.

Never Forgotten

Side by side they slept,

But each face drawn tight,

Twisted in vivid nightmares.

He saw,

She saw,

Their baby.

Little fingers,

On little hands.

She reached out,

To her baby.

He reached out,

To his baby.

Each pulled back,

In terror.

They saw,

Their bloodstained hands.

Still the baby,

Cried on.

The mother’s,

The father’s,

Screams echoed.

The baby called out:



Together, they cried out,

“You will never

be forgotten!”

He saw.

She saw.

They never forgot.



About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
