january 22nd

we

light

a candle

another year

asking for mercy

a prayer walk for life

silent memorial for unborn

53 million taken before their time

ripped or salted from mothers’ wombs

medical professionals under hippocratic oath

who profit from selling spare body parts

hearts grow cold as a january night

boots tramp uncleared sidewalk

while 53 million snowflakes

sparkle as tiny diamonds

under a misty moon

frozen tears

of love

lost
