I didn’t get the right to choose
To have you.
You were not conceived out of love,
But violence from a stranger.
I cried nights on end
About the thought of you.
I never wanted you; you should not have come into this world,
Especially not like this.
I tried to get rid of you, but couldn’t.
They refused to let me vacuum you out of my womb,
Because the rape has more justice than I sin.
I had an idea of what I would feel, if they let me did it.
I imagined the pain and decided
It couldn’t be worse than a child knowing they were never loved and
Were given to a stranger like an object.
You’re in my arms with a smile wider than the sun,
Your eyes sparkle and light up,
You’re happy, but I’m miserable.
I don’t love you,
You remind me of the pain,
I’m sorry I couldn’t prevent you,
Maybe you will find someone who’ll love you.
