The Damned Birthing Room

The smell of bodily fluids

Tears, urine, and vomit

Fills the room.

She screams words of sorrow,

Aching for a hope to borrow

As he kicks in her womb.

But hope rarely follows

A mercilessly abused crawler

Who's foreverly doomed.

For it's a child she swallowed

From a poisoned water bottle

That inside of her it bloomed.

It's a mistake she recalled.

And we all felt appalled

So we huddled into a group

To tell her that it's a gift from God

Whether it's Allah, Jesus, or Raah

Without His mercy she'd be fooled.

What a great gift I thought!

It comes with pain and distraught

And a lifetime of it's poop.

A baby from an unwanted father

"Abused" written on its collar

I hope it doesn't become a buffoon.

"C'mon give us a push that's harder,"

Said the nurse with a face that stalers

At the complexity of this mood.

Another nurse checks the radar

A look of horrid fear made the red in her cheeks fader

"DIED," and she broke into a puddle of doom.

That's what I witnessed

In the damned birthing room.

Well yeah, it's really hard to give birth. Then after raising your child the right way he'll end up messed like everybody else does...people die for a reason no matter how young or how old they are. It is sad, but it is the reality. :(

Giving birth is like having someone stuck inside of your body that you're trying to get out. So sad and painful. Thanks for dropping by, reading what I wrote, and commenting! I greatly appreciate it :)

LadyFiddler, thank you for stopping by! Honestly, before this incident, I never knew how hard giving birth was. I actually told my mother that I do not want to have kids after watching what had happened. I hope that all of your pains go away! Thanks again :D
