Imagine not seeing your loving mother’s eyes,

Imagine not hearing the treasured lullabies.

Imagine the baby boy, who will never be a man,

Just because he’s not part of his parents’ “plan.”

Unwanted pregnancies are said to be flaws

Which can be terminated under U.S. laws.

Is it a child, or a blob of tissue?

Should we let our government decide this issue?

We must step back and never cower

And defend life that came from a higher power.

So men and women, stand up for what’s right,

And remember the innocent for whom we fight.

Don’t let the importance of this cause fade,

Work and pray to overturn Roe v. Wade.
