#3: Abortion: II
Mommy, Mommy, here inside,
Do you look on me with pride?
Do you love me, hope to see
The day when I first start to breathe?
Mommy, Mommy, don’t you hope
For when I’ll see the world full scope?
Or do you think I’ll bane your life
And fill it with all kinds of strife?
Mommy, Mommy, hear my cry:
Do I deserve infanticide?
What have I done wrong, I ask,
To send me up to Heaven so fast?
Mommy, Mommy, what you say
Is life on earth won’t be okay;
That you don’t have money to try
To raise me up- so I must die.
But Mommy! Mommy! Don’t you see?
God takes care of you and me.
Just ask Him and He’ll provide.
Can’t I live? Won’t you try?
Mommy, now I hear your voice.
Will I really take away your choice?
Is it to have life as you please?
Does my existing cost you ease?
Mommy, Mommy – so you know –
In case you want to still say no,
In your center, in my core,
I have a beating heart- like yours!
Mommy, Mommy, what’s it like?
To laugh, or talk, or ride a bike?
What’s it like to see Mom’s eyes,
Soft and caring and comforting cries?
Mommy, Mommy, tell me true!
Weren’t you once a baby, too?
How is it to first see light?
To see the world and gain your sight?
Mommy, Mommy, tell me so-
Do you still think that I should go?
Or won’t you please protect my life?
It’s all I have besides this plight.
Mommy, Mommy, from your womb,
Will this dark place be my tomb?
I have purpose- God said so!
So, won’t you please let me grow?
Mommy, Mommy, hear my plea!
Listen to my silent screams!
Please don’t push me far away!
But- there is Heaven, where I’ll stay.
Mommy, I hope you will see
I’m here because Christ died for me.
In case you want to see me, then,
I’ll be waiting in Heaven.
Mommy, I want you to know
That even though you let me go,
I will forgive you, though and through-
You’re still my Mommy- I still love you.
“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”
