150 (who?)
Today, I will face my indelible death
My life will be silenced, though I am still unborn
My Momma’s eyes, stained with sorrow
As she wipes away the tears, her cheeks have worn
But she promises to herself, that she won’t mourn
For I am a product of her illegitimate mistake
A consequence of a love, forbidden and torn
And eradicating me is her only route of escape

Though there is no glimpse of light where I am hidden
I know the world beyond this womb is filled with colour
That there is transcendental beauty my eyes will never see
And a life I will never have the chance to savour
Defenselessly I will descend to ashes
By a remorseless choice made from shame
My loveless existence will be aborted
And my fathomless dreams, buried in a grave

Never will I consume my first breath of air
Or experience the effervescence of laughter
Never will I know the meaning of love
Or envision my future from hereafter
If only at this moment, I was given a voice
To speak to Momma and comfort her woes
If only at this moment, I was given a choice
To accept the gift of life, and all that follows

Powerless, I may be
But Momma, please
If you can hear my thoughts
Don’t abandon me
Please cherish your inner strength
To give birth to me
Listen to the love in your heart
To give life to me

I promise that my presence
Will diminish all your burdens
For the stars have brought me to you
To show you the love you deserve
I’m a gift in disguise, Momma
So please, just wait a while
I’m just like you in every way
I have your eyes, I have your smile

Don’t let them take me away from you
Because Momma
I love you
I truly do
So please
If you can hear my plea
Just know that
This life will mean a lot to me
It’s not too late to change your mind
So Momma please, I beg you
Let me live.
I am very much PRO-CHOICE. I believe that women should have the right to choose what happens to their body without being harrassed by other people. There are many circumstances where abortion is the best option.

But I saw a movie where the pregnant mother (who was raped) was psychotic and she heard her baby/foetus talk to her and it just broke my heart to see that. After that, just as she was about to get her baby aborted, she changed her mind. Either way, it brought me to tears and I thought I would write a poem based on that.

No religion debates. Thank you.

Wow, this is so sad and yet so true and precise. If only unborn children could speak. This should be put up in every single abortion clinic throughout the world.
