The Test

The Test

A Poem by asianeaster915

This is about a poem of a woman who is considering aborting her child soon after she find out she's pregnant. However, all of a sudden something gets a hold of her and she ends up changing her mind.

Blue lines bleed into the tiny plastic frames. 
Intensity builds as I think of a name. 
Lost in thought and trapped in, "Why." 
All I know to do is cry.
"I'm not ready," my heart screams. 
This is all so unreal, it must be a dream!
I dreadfully wait to share the news.
Hoping MY life I won't lose. 

Fear grips me like the hands of a murderer.
I begin to tremble in my doubts. 
My knees grow weak as my heart turns cold. 
"Oh Lord, take me before I turn old."

Then, I hear a voice echoing from the Heavens.
"I am not through with you yet my child." 
My cold heart is comforted by these words above. 
I regain my strength and find time to love. 

"Lord, I am not ready but I will trust you.
Forgive me for my selfishness, I had not a clue."
I will keep this child within me and I will never let go.
Even when it's hard; for this is worth it -I know."
