A Poem by Ms.Bri

I go from crying to smiling,

joy to pain

in the matter of minutes your words tearing me apart,

every syllable is like a sharp knife to my heart


a grin of vengeance,

a scar unseen but felt,

inside screaming

How could you!

heart beating rapidly until death comes,

the last three words "I HATE YOU" killing me instantly.

I am the stillborn,

you didn't want me, I am more than what u made,

I am present to the living,

death was almost me,

my voice is more than noise,

my feet little but ready to step over the word


no questions just hurtful words,

don't touch me,

putting me out like a garbage bag,

I am not trash,

I am simply yours,

you didn't want me and still don't.

Ouch, the reality of this piece is real, its raw, and haunting!
It will hang heavy on the reader, festering if you let it..

Abortion is a hard subject. I saw photos of babies in the early stages. They have feet and hands. All children are precious and need a chance at life. Thank you for sharing this sad and powerful poem.
