Prayer to Mary, Mother of All

Prayer to Mary, Mother of All
by: John B. Juat

Mother Mary, my mother and mother of all
Accompany us so that we will stand up tall
From discouragement and sadness, may we not fall
Oh Blessed Mother, be our spiritual shield and wall

Mama, be our companion in this tiring quest
And make us successful in every single test
When we feel tired, lead us to your Son that we may find rest
That we may be refreshed, encouraged, and be at our best

Mother Mary, make us realize the importance of the family
How it plays a big role in the progress of our society
We can and will overcome hardship if we work in harmony
And together practice not greed and selfishness, but charity

Mama, show to us that you are our mother
Comfort each one of us when we all suffer
Gather us in your embrace when we tend to scatter
Please unite us, mama, that we may fight this together

Mother Mary, make us all realize that the RH bill is a serious threat
And will only lead to sadness, failed marriages and regret
Guide us that our values and morals we may never forget
And make people follow the good examples we set

Mama, we know that you love our beloved country
We pray that we shun everything that confuses our morality
Lead us, mother, in our fight to uphold life’s sanctity
And spare our nation from having a contraceptive mentality

Mother Mary, guide us to actively fight the passage of this bill
We know full well that this is against your Son’s holy will
Protect us and save us from the twisted morality it will instill
Because we know that a lot of your children, they will kill

Mama, make our stand for life be very strong
To a point that there is nothing that can go wrong
We will continue to fight, no matter how long
Because we know that in God’s army, we all belong

Mother Mary, we know that you are always by our side
Helping us, straightening the roads in this rough and bumpy ride
With your guidance, we will continue on a forward stride
We will fight for your Son; His loving laws we will continue to abide

Mama, please lead us and take us by the hand
Show us the way to Jesus; teach us His loving command
Inspire all of us so that people will finally understand
That the RH bill should not even exist in our motherland

Contraceptives have been used a lot in our recent history
They are easily available; some are even given for free!
I wonder which is the perfect contraceptive for me
I'll try to ask around; I'm really interested to see

What will happen if I choose to take the pill?
I think it will solve my problems. I think it will
No, they tell me, my own child i could kill
and it will only make me feel very ill

What about a condom, is it the best for me?
Can i be assured that with it, there will no longer be pregnancy?
No, they tell me, and I'll put myself at risk of HIV
As well as other STDs like the deadly HPV

What will happen If i ask them to insert on me an IUD?
From all my worries, will i be free?
No, they tell me. I could abort my child accidentally
It's something that i might regret for all eternity

If all these fail, will I choose to proceed?
Or will abortion be a choice and a need?
No, they tell me, I will badly bleed
And may ultimately die in this evil deed

Now I understand and see clearly
Contraceptives are unsafe for you and me
Why will i suffer if I'm completely healthy?
It's just not worth it, it's selfishness and stupidity

I made a choice; I choose to be free
So I will not contracept, because I respect my body
I am a woman, a human with great dignity
I dare not desecrate my temple of beauty
