    there is a poem - prayer before birth :Louise Mc Niece 1907 - 1963; the poem is an agonised plea from the mouth of an unborn infant in its mother's womb. The child seeks protection from the Divine & begs forgiveness for all the deeds of evil that it shall commit once out of the womb. The child's plea is a representation of the poets anguish; grief & fear in a world that has steadily metamorphosed into hell> The poet paints a picture devoid of compassion, love & remorse through the haunting appeal of the inborn infant. The poem reflects the poet's utter dejection & hopelessness expressing the thought that the world will not correct itself, but perpetuate it's evils in an ever ascending spiraling pattern of violence. The foregone conclusion that the child will live a life of treason & its apology proffered in advance for its death after & has lived as a lethal "automation" offers a picture of a world akin to nothing but hell. All these thing are orchestrated by people by People that can be named & I know personally , have been in their house & it is purposeful, it the the whole object of their life.
