Raleigh, NC: Pregnant Woman Shot and Killed, Baby Survives

pregnant woman

What a tragic news story I have come across. The miracle child inspired me to write this poem.

Pregnant woman killed
Baby survives
Two shots to the back
Yet the child’s alive

6 months when delivered
Most not until 9
Some killed at 3
But that’s a blurred line.

Could we need anymore proof?
Fully formed in the womb
This beating heart takes a breath.

Alive since conception
No matter your perception
Anything after this moment is death.

What Life is Really About

Life isn't about
