LOSING EVADER
(For the Unborn Victims)

 

Could you face the face

That you had defaced?

 

In your mind

Jungle prevails

On hectic side roads -

Dizzy, untraced,

Novel, bootless affairs,

Betrayals, infidelities -

A set-up that fails.

 

Running worthless race,

Refusing His golden gift

In uncontrite disgrace

That all ways can't erase...

(run away, turn a tail

and positively fail...).

 

The Holy Visage

Can't be eluded

Or Ideal Heart

Ever deluded;

At the crucial End,

Must ineluctably face...

All piercing Gaze;

No senseless web

Confusing maze;

No craftily escaping

Impenitent disgrace -

No credible defense

For atrocious offense...

No affairs to amuse

Nor pleas, pretexts

Or affording hope, excuse...

(Are you deep in reverie

faraway - bemused?)

 

Can you face

The All-knowing Gaze?

Can you face the face

That you had defaced?

Can you face my face?

..............................................................................................

Who is my mother?

           *****

"The one who does,

The will of My Father..."

This was a very touching poem. It's so sad, the way the sin of man can kill so easily and without thought. I love the line, "Can you face the face that you defaced?" That is so true. They cannot. They turn their heads from the truth. Thank you for this poem. Well said. I, too, have written poems about the killing of innocent life. That killing can NOT be reversed. Thank you again for such a strong message...
