I was recently asked to talk about the future of Greater Columbus Right to Life. What does it hold for us? Where are we going? The answer to the question of our future lies with our youth and our young adults. They are our future. This group of passionate, caring, smart, energized and quite simply amazing people are our future. If you want to know where to find me, look toward the youth. I'll be investing in them and, I'm sure, learning from them as well.
Let me introduce you to the future of Greater Columbus Right to Life. This poem was written by Trianna Connelly, a freshman at Bishop Ready High School. She is a budding poetess and writer. I look forward to reading more of Trianna's poetry.
What is life and why does it matter?
Between death and life I would choose the latter.
Such a precious gift, such a joyous thought,
Life is something that can never be bought.
All deserve to life in God's grace.
You will never know until you come face to face
But that little creature you hold
is an example of waht is told
For killing this innocent soul
For ripping apart a chance to have a role
In thei crazy world we call life.
Whether it is important of filled with strife
Is tortuous and wrong
For this is their world too, a place to belong.
Don't you ever think about what you are doing?
About what you are pursuing?
This tiny life that you bare
So find and fair
Is a piece of you and will always be
So choose thE right choice and let it be free
For it loves you more than you will ever know
Because if you give up something you bestow
That love will be lost
And in turn, you will pay the cost
For you will realize that you love it too
And killing this creature will be like killing you
