First I will say that there is controversy regarding some of the songs and poetry by the artist, Common. I am in no way supporting his work or what he says in some of it. I do however think this song has some great insight and wanted to see what you all thought about it. It comes from a perspective of regret over an abortion, a father in pain from the decision he made.
So many times we forget the pain and regret that men go through after an abortion and only focus on the hurting woman. I love the fact that both Silent No More and Rachel’s Vineyard focus also on healing for men after abortion.
I would love to see a song like this that stressed the forgiveness and hope of Christ as part of the message.
