What Have I Don? - Poem by Lawrence s. Makola

What have I done?
What is my fault?
How did I do wrong?
Do I deserve this?
What have I done?

I know not my name
I know not the face of my father
Yet my mom I know because of the evil
She did to me
What have I done?

Amongst the seeds of my daddy
I was the one that won the race
the one that broke into the egg of women
I thought the battle was over
To my own consternation I was snuffed out

Transformation from the sperm to the body
I expected it to take place
And I waited for the transmogrifying event
From an embryo to the fetus
Which never took place
What have I done?

Flabbergasted and astound was I
Perplex and confounded was I
What breed of women is this?
Is she from GOD or devil?
Is she normal or eccentric
Could you please answer me; what have I done?

I never trampled over the dust of the earth
Yet I was found to be bad
Mistake was my glorious name
Meanwhile abortion was my birth name
What have I done?

I exclaimed Treason! Treason! !
But there was no one to help
I lifted my eyes to the hills
To my unfortunate I found no answer
What have I done?

What is my fault?
How did I do wrong
Do I indeed, deserve this?
What have I done?
