I began mah life, from that single cell,
An embryo, from morula to a blastula,
O' that beautiful, my mom's amour
O' how's the outside world, I was very excited to explore..
See, my little heart got developed ,
Aww those three lovely layers,I was enveloped .
Heh!, It has just been 30 days,
But, at the mountain peak was my crazy craze!!
Today is the end of first trimester,
See, my those genitals and little legs
I can, now learn to walk, Ah! am so glad
To come out of the womb, I became so mad!!
Today I completed, my fifth month inside,
Now those tiny hairs covered my size,
And that second trimester has end,
heh!! I love those pretty eyelashes around my eyes!
O' I heard my father's voice,
A baby boy, was his choice.
To my mom :"I just want a boy", he said
"No Girl" otherwise you will be dead..
"Why are you yelling like a banshee?
It's not in my hand, It's not in my hand!"
Dad contradicted "Just a boy, you have to mould,
If a girl, then you will be killed and she will be sold."
Listening to them, I got to know
That, my dad was like a morose,
Now,I was too much frightened,
As that delivery day was coming close.
No,I can't be the reason behind her death,
Though to explore the world,I had willed,
But, I can't bear that pain,
Because if I will be out,my mom will be killed.
My dad's will,I finally abided,
To be stillborn, I finally decided.
I remember that he wanted me to sell
Whenever he saw my mom,everytime he yelled.
So, I finally left my mom's placenta,
In a grief tone,I cried
But all i wanted was that my mom to be saved,
So, I left the world, ie. I died!!
