A Mother's Hardest Decision

This is an event she can't wrap around her head She should've given the drink the man had given her a second thought She woke up and he left her for dead She had no bottoms on and there was no way she could've fought She took a test two months later She looked down and it was undeniable She wanted to become her own operator Because of a government that's so unreliable A decision too hard for anyone to make But either way people are going to look down in disappointment How much of this should she be allowed to take? So instead she makes an appointment Now the fatherless child is somewhere with no pain But the mother is crying about her decision in the rain

Deep, exceptionally so. Well written. I would never look down on someone for making that decision. Personally I feel a child needs to be born by love to be loved.

That is exactly what I believe. The main reason I wrote this was to show people this isn't an easy decision to make. It's usually a last resort for people, and a lot of people live with guilt every day. This is only one of the variety of scenarios that happy. Either way it is a heartbreaking decision nobody wants to make. Thank you for your thoughts! -Kye :)
