Babies Silenced

Babies Silenced

A Poem by Sunflower/Sara Kendrick

About abortion, written to the song "The Sound Of Silence". Written by Paul Simon...


Hello abortion my friend

I've come to you again

Because a period not creeping

He left his seeds while I was sleeping

And the baby that was planted in my womb

Still remains

Within my fear of silence


In disturbed dreams I walked alone

Narrow streets of cobblestone

'Neath the halo of the moon lamp

I turn my heart to be cold and damp

When my eyes were struck by a flash of

Small insight

That split my night

And touched my heart of silence


And in the night light I saw

Ten million babies maybe more

Babies crying with much weeping

People hearing without really caring

People writing names of murdered child never shared

For no one dared

Distrub the cry of silence


"Fools" said I, "Abortion kills

Silenced permanently babies still"

Hear my words that I might nurture you

Take my arms that I might hold you

But my words like silent stardust fell

And echoed in the womb of silence

And some people bowed and prayed

To the God of Love today

And the song flashed out its warning

In my words that song was forming

And the sign said "The words of the prophets

Are written on peoples hearts"

And that is a place to start

And they're whispered in the silence

This was written for a competition...It had to be from some of Simon and Garfunkle's works set to the music so that it could be sung...I did use some of the words in the orginal song..
