The Writer's Voice

Alice C. Bateman

Romance, has it been dying

‘Midst our blue jeans and our sneakers

Are we losing our identities

Are we getting weaker


We are children of our mothers

But we’re not what they once were

The frills and laces disappeared

Our womanhood’s less pure


We murder unborn children

That might be ‘inconvenient’

We put our wishes before God’s

So far He's been lenient


The flowers that meant romance

The dance that felt so sweet

Have somehow sadly gotten lost

On life’s fast, busy streets


I’d like to feel the music

And hear a lover’s heart

Appreciating all it means

The sum of woman’s parts


The flowers and the romance

May be just what we’ve lost

And if that’s so, then this sad world

Should stop and count the cost
