They called her a seed,
But she became a healer.
She brought comfort to many.
Her name was Florence Nightingale.

They called him an embryo,
But he became an inventor,
A man of ingenuity that lit up the world.
His name was Thomas Edison.

They called her a fetus,
But she became a beacon of hope,
A woman who fed body and soul.
Her name was Mother Theresa.

They called him unborn with no rights,
But he became a civil rights leader,
A man who furthered peace and justice for all.
His name was Dr. Martin Luther King.

How many were called seed, embryo, or fetus
And snuffed out with little thought?
Were they the healers, light, hope, and justice of today?
We will never know.
