       I kind of cranked this one out rather quickly after watching a horrendous news story about a little infant girl found in a bag floating on the water. They showed the rescuer retrieving the bag and opening it- revealing the little life inside- crying -neatly dressed- with a ribbon on her head. Who ever did this- never looked in that child's eyes- or else they would see- nothing is more valuable- NOTHING!

    dotsA Prayer for the Childdots

    A prayer for the child,
    thrown away like trash-
    no loving hand touched her
    in her miniscule past.

    Floating downstream-
    she struggles for breath;
    an inhumane journey,
    yet she defies death.

    Washed into the arms
    of those who could care:
    This was not fate-
    they would find her there.

    A prayer for the child
    who didn't ask to be born-
    Her Father was watching-
    and now keeps her from harm.

    My prayer for this child:
    May she always feel loved-
    when weak, draw her strength
    from the powers Above.

      Wow, so touching, it makes me wonder sometimes how anyone could abandon a child, especially the mother. It has a very prayerful feel and the flow matches the title and the words used. It reminds me of my own birthmother, who gave me up for adoption, who gave me a chance at a better life rather than destroying the life she could not support. Great poem, keep it up.

      This poem is imaculate. The best one Ive seen for a while. Not because of the wording or flow, but the idea and emotion, how real the subject is.

      Absolutely beautiful
    You captured the feelings I felt when hearing this story perfectly
    I dont understand and dont think I ever will how a person can try to kill a beautiful loving child
    There are so many alternatives
    People need to realize it could be as simple as dropping a child off at the fire house or police station with no questions asked
    This really is a sad reality and you worded the situation perfectly
    God Bless

      This was a beautiful write for such a horrible situation. You did a fabulous job with this poem. I try not to talk about "flow" a lot, but I can't not talk about it in this piece. It just came out so smoothly and you worded things perfectly. You offer a very sweet prayer and I hope that baby will forever be safe in loving arms. Somebody was definately watching from up above. Thank you so much for sharing this piece!

    I liked your prayer for the child and the write was put together quite well even if you did do it in haste!
    Good job and hopefully this child gets cared for.
    Thanks for sharing!

      This was a very nice little write. I espesially like the first stanza
    A prayer for the child,
    thrown away like trash-
    no loving hand touched her
    in her miniscule past.
    This poem had wonderful flow and rhyme and nice wording. It was very wonderfully done and you should be proud.
