Abortion - Poem by Steve Kimberley

I'm 4 months in the making now,
I'm 8 inches long and weigh about half a pound,
My heart beats, i have fingernails and many bones,
My face is human and im starting to develop hair.

But i'm non-existent, apparently i'm not wanted,
they talk about getting rid of me
Hello, i'm right here,
living, Breathing, Preparing for my unjust termination.

Trapped in something i cannot get out of,
Killed by whats keeping me alive,
My Mum.

    I respect Andy's judgment as more of a poetry reader than I, but it's the first foetus poem I've read (although I did try to write one from my two miscarried brothers once, it was a big experience to write it) , and I got the fresh force of it, so I'm for giving it a 9 and saying thanks...
