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.
A very profound poem, Bri! Deleting those two words would take away from the the poem's full impact. It hit me like a ton of bricks. Excellent write!
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.
A very sad reality to some? .....of innocents lost in the dark! ........well written Bri
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.
you set a good example Bri
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

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.
