Bri's Response To The P H Poem: " I Am Your Baby, Mum ", By Dr. Antony Theodore ... [ Bharati Nayak Has Translated Antony's Poem Into Odia; Abortion; Pregnancy ]

Rating: 5.0

I did not come on my own Mum;

I was in you because your drunken B U M
of an uncle raped you against your will.
It's too bad you had no birth control pill.

Your baby was thrilled, no cares had it.
Your body supplied food & took away its S H I T.
It never got to taste how life outside might be,
with the good AND the bad. 'Mum' chose to be free.

Topic(s) of this poem: abortion,baby,rape
abortion is a 'tool', sometimes used in haste, sometimes used after much consideration for the welfare of 'ALL involved'.it is a divisive issue. i believe that Dr. A. Theodore's poem and my poem, in response to his, are overly simplistic, but they are both worth reading.i do not believe in God.but even if i did, i might easily support abortion use.feel free to comment.i suggest you read Antony's English language version and Bharati's translation into Odia, to be found in her list of poems.

you don't read Odia? ?neither do i! ! !



p.s. PH at first deleted my words b-u-m [maybe because is can mean
a-s-s in U.K.? ] and s-h-i-t from my i capitalized and separated the letters.that works.b u m means something else to me. here, S H I T refers to waste products given off by a fetus/baby in a womb/uterus and carried away by the umbilical cord i believe.

PROOFReading is essential to a well-presented poem! ! !

What can be said for the death of a child? I've had two children the first one i adopted out to some very good parent's. Could not even imagine killing him and unborn dreams. Thanks Bri.

Abortion in rarest case is preferred in the society, but should be banned in my opinion. I have loved reading Madam Bharati, s write up and agree with her concept.

I had read Dr Anthony’s poem long time back and still remember it for its excellence and bringing attention to a serious topic. I generally am not for abortion accept in rare circumstances. Rape or danger to mother’s life. Even in those cases it is better to leave the decision to mother father or family members. Governmental or any outside involment just makes things more complicated. Specially in gov’s case it is more about money than the welfare of people involved.

If no care is given to a baby this provokes thought. and this is so sad. All should take care of children. An amazing poem is beautifully penned in response to poem, I Am Your Baby, Mum, By Dr. Antony Theodore....10
