Dear mom, dad -
keeper of my DNA,
it was not my choice to be conceived 
( these actions you are about to take,
     I never would have believed )

With you, I have placed my trust
- only to be, deceitfully deceived


I have no voice


If indeed you must,
     take my life

Before searching my face, with grace,
before attempting to hold my hand, 
          my tiny finger,
created by the Creator that created you too


( You don’t wish to linger )


If indeed you must,
    take my life giving breath

Before finding jewels in my eyes, 
    while singing soft lullabies
before watching me grow,
into the adult you will learn to love
     and in time, get to know  


    If indeed you must,
take my life giving breath,
  take me from this earth


Before having the chance,
        to meet you


Know that:  I loved you, before you loved me
        I will never know your love,
                   My Worth


 I have no voice 



Sincerely,
    Your unborn child

This is so beautiful. Thank you for speaking for those who cannot. It took me 3 years to conceive my twins, and knowing that someone would take the life of their unborn child is so sad. I could not imagine doing so. Thank you again.

I believe everything happens for a reason and there are so many avenues available, so many who would want a baby who are childless and desperately want a child. I would not judge anyone's choice however, as it is their karma not mine. There are some horrible circumstances that may be involved. Great food for thought. Congratulations on having this poem honored for POTD Brandy! : ) xxoo
