The Red Sea: "It's a Girl" by Christina

It's a Girl

 

by Christina

 

You cannot hear her,

but her cries are great.

She pleads for mercy,

 

before it's too late.

 

She wishes and dreams,

and prays to God above.

For a second chance,

 

or just a miracle of love.

 

Is she not worthy?

The debate hold her life.

To have her own voice,

or to end it with a knife?

 

She's breathing and beating,

and she wants you to see

the value of her life

and what she could be.

 

She knows it's hard,

but please understand.

The murder of her,

is the destroyer of the land.

 

 

Summary

“It’s a Girl” emphasizes how valuable a girl’s life is. Girl’s have endless opportunities, dreams, wishes, purpose, as long as they are given the chance to experience life for themselves. Forced abortion in China is not making mothers “un-pregnant” but instead, is adding to the genocide of innocent blood and cries from the Lord’s beloved. Girls have just as much worth as men, she has purpose and dreams for her life, and God loves her just as much as any man. The genocide of females have been destroying China and will continue to devastate those exploited by it. My dream for China is for all females to be given a miracle of love.

This piece is a reflection of the lives lost to injustice, and it reflects my attitude toward it.

The New Year is generally a time of joy and harmony for many families. However, in China, it can also be a time of unspeakable sadness and sorrow.
