A Baby's View Of Abortion - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

I came as tomorrow
Swaddled in innocence
To your warm womb
Mother……
Without your choice
Or mine
Destined to up date
With time
Our human tree
But before love
Grew into flesh and words
What is unfinished creation-
A precipitation of blood
Became my transcendence.

    I like that this poem doesn't appear to take sides; it is just an imaginative and powerful of the act.

    this is not a word i use or am very familiar with:

    tran·scend·ence
    ˌtran(t) ˈsendəns/
    noun
    noun: transcendence; plural noun: transcendences; noun: transcendency

    existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level.
    the possibility of spiritual transcendence in the modern world
    synonyms: excellence, supremacy, incomparability, matchlessness, peerlessness, magnificence; rare paramountcy
    the transcendence of love
    ======================================

    i don't believe in God. Rini (below) mentions brutality of mankind. seems to me, from my youth as a church-goer, that God was pretty brutal at times, and He/She/It [if in fact H/S/I existed/exists] did allow
    mankind to be brutal at times.

    the idea that life is 'sacred' is not one i share with you undoubtedly.

    maybe abortion is God's will. maybe God noticed the mistake made by getting one set of parents
    pregnant. so God decided to allow/cause an abortion (or miscarriage, or stillborn birth, or childhood disease
    or accident) to 'take' the baby and place it into another womb where it might have a better chance for a 'good
    life'! ! ! !

    but, except for the word transcendence, i think the poet made his point.

    Too often, a blood sacrifice to the great god Convenience.
    Your work is pure poetry, Yoonoos! - and profoundly meaningful.

    I thought I had read this poem before, but it didn't seem familiar. Someone else must have one with a similar title. It is very well done, however. I really enjoyed reading it. (Report) Reply

    Interesting, I loved the imagery. It was short but packed a powerful punch in a soft and delicate way (Report) Reply

    Yoonoos, What is unfinished creation-
    A precipitation of blood
    Became my transcendence is actually a summary of a half-baked human being - flour and yeast removed prematurely before the baking process could be complete....thanks for this poem!
