A Child Forgotten

A Child Forgotten

A Poem by Erin

If you get angry with pro-lifers, I wouldn't read this.

You hold her child in your arms
Her baby, so young, so innocent.
Her child sleeping and dreaming
A full life ahead of them awaits.

You remember your child
Your innocent baby.
The life they never were to have.
Their choices predestined by a young women.

You remember your child
The little angel who never saw the sun.
What happened to your little child?
They died by your decisions.

You made a mistake,
You knew you were too young.
But still you had sex
And the child had to pay.

You never heard the child cry
Or hear their very first word.
What would this child's name have been?
Would they have been a boy or a girl?

Where did your innocent baby go?
They died while in the womb.
Their tiny heart stopped beating and their mind slowly shut down.
The innocent life is gone.

Why does this noise seem so empty?
The cries of your child you never will hear.
Their laughter won't ever bring you happiness
Their life cut so short by an unfair decision.

You hold her baby in your arms
She smiles at you as the child rests.
She doesn't know you ever were pregnant
She doesn't know of your choice.

You kiss the child's head so softy
And lay them in their crib
A tear falls down your face as you think of your little baby.
The life that never was.

Author's Note

If you wish to speak further on beliefs of abortion, please take care to not comment about it, rather message me. This poem does not hold even close to the number of reasons that I am pro-life, many of said reasons come from my religion and my own morals detached from religion.
