I Want to Live

I Want to Live

I was conceived in my mothers womb,
She doesn’t want me, this is my tomb.
Why would she want to kill me?
When will she hear my plea?

I feel so useless, so all alone,
Where has my mothers compassion gone?
I can be loved by someone, somewhere,
Doesn’t anyone out there really care?

Please, Mom, please give me my birth,
Let me be a part of the humans on earth.
I promise I’ll be good, if you’ll only let me live,
Please don’t abort me; I have lots of love to give.

The Supreme Court has ruled that I must die,
They won’t let me live just to see the blue sky.
God, I beg of you for the children yet to be,
Lord, change the hearts of humans to set the children free.

    Thank you Gordon, I find it a great honor to write in an attempt to save the little unborn babies. If this poem can somehow save just one child, then the time and effort it well worth it. Thanks for your kind words and may God bless you. My wife and I are working hard each day for the little children. Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I am putting my whole effort and most of my time in trying to change the way we treat our unborn children. God Bless, your friend Lynn.
