A CHOICE?
(c)2010 Rock Peters

Last night my father and mother came together
and I was conceived
at that moment God gave me my soul
and a miracle was achieved,

I am happy nestled
in my mother’s womb
it was made for me
my little room,

My mother does not yet
know that I am in her
soon she’ll feel me
as I begin to stir,

I am a baby girl
she’ll pick out my name
I wonder what it will be,
maybe the same?

I am getting big
now I have eyes, hands and feet
I so hope my mother loves me
and thinks I’m sweet,

She and I are connected
by an umbilical cord
this has been done
by the Lord,

Today my mother found out
I am here
suddenly I
am full of fear,

She’s not happy
I’m unwanted
about what she’ll do
I am haunted,


My father too
didn’t like the news
he’s unsure
about what to do,

It seems my parents
are unmarried
so they’re not sure
I should be carried,

I heard my mother say I’m her body
isn’t that just fine?
Hey Mom! I’m not a tumor
and this body is mine!

An unborn child
is not a malignancy
and that is why
IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO TERMINATE A PREGNANCY!

Somehow she thinks
my life is her choice
just because
she cannot yet hear my voice,

If I were born
I would have every right
but in my mother’s womb I have none
and for my life I can’t fight,

Today they made the decision
I will die
in my mother’s stomach
I cry and cry,

Tomorrow is the day
I’ll be killed
this is what
my own parents have willed,

I’ll never get the chance to play dolls
or go to school
my mother will never
wipe away my baby drool,

Before I ever
get my start
my parents will stop
my little baby heart,

The moment has come
an object is coming inside
I try to run
but cannot hide,

I want to cry, “Mommy save me!”
but she’s the one
by whom to me
this is being done,

I am caught by my leg
I let out a silent scream
this is the end
of all my little girl dreams,

I thought I was safe
in mother’s womb
but I wasn’t safe there
it was my tomb.
