Happy Birthday

I am the result of the wrong time conceived in a moment of passion two wine soaked minds upon a fertile field each combined In early morn each to their own way unknown to either when their passion died new life arrived Too soon discovered both agreed it was a mistake easily fixed neither could wait I will never know my father or loving arms to hold me near I have been given a death sentence with no appeal or prospect of a stay I will be aborted and flushed away soon to be forgotten no one to care no one to wish me Happy Birthday

wow Mac. this seems to be about the sad choice of abortion to me. an incredible write. I do have mixed feelings, certainly against it as birth control that's for sure. a very emotional write. too controversial to get into - but I say a voice for the child who has none, in this very sad poem. well done. (and sorry about the 5 lbs - I think i gained a few myself when I wrote that one : )). hugs, shar xo
