A Short Wombly Life

Updated on May 23, 2016

Life is a very precious thing no matter how small it may be

Having a chance at life and embracing knowledge and love is the key

Who has the right to say who lives and who dies when they themselves are mere humans

Too much death, too little hope, too much hate has the world in confusion

Come, let us look at life as it begins in the womb

Some of us make it out, while some have moved from womb to tomb

A Short Wombly Life

Oh Thank you father, you have given me life and as placed me in another
Soon my tiny cells will become flesh and I will be given birth and be loved by a mother
The Soul has shown me life and how beautiful it can be
Now that I have been conceived, I can’t wait to see.
The adorable little clothes and those sweet little shimmies
I know my dad will give me lots of hugs and kisses
I just can’t wait to see grandma and grandpa, I know they will spoil me too
and I will adore them and love them true
I know my mother just can’t wait to have me beside her and kissing my little cheeks
And I will cry, feed, hug and love her every day of the weeks

What’s this they say, we will be going to the doctor today
They must be checking on my health, maybe they think I am in disarray
I heard mother speaking to the doctor and then she began to cry
I felt every bit of emotions and tears filled my eyes
She signed a piece of paper and went into a room
Suddenly I felt my tiny spirit drop and there was gloom in the womb
I heard he asked her if she was sure this is what she was about
She replied that she is not ready and just wanted to take it out
What is inside of my wonderful mother she so anxiously needs to disregard
I looked around to see if something else was in here with me, but it was just me and my umbilical cord

Before I knew it, my home was invaded by foreign objects
Was I the target of these objects, was I the subject?
After a long while I felt my tiny body burning
I screamed for help inside but I was trapped and was badly hurting
I saw parts of me being melted and I was in pain
I cried out to mom but my cries were in vain
Was I the thing she wanted out of her so bad
What did I do to make her so mad
I am not angry, I will love her still
For she is still my mother, no matter her will
I made one last agonizing scream as my flesh dissipate
Still wondering what I had done to be spawned this hate

When I was looking for a beginning
A plan was made for me to see the end
A short Wombly life, I wish never to feel again.

Not even a place to rest | Gone way too soon.
Not even a place to rest | Gone way too soon.

      Clive, you were able to bring that unborn baby right into my heart. It made me sad, yet I couldn't judge the mother. We must walk in her shoes to know the circumstance. I loved this!

      Than you always exploring, yes we cannot simply judge the mother, i see your point, but nevertheless it is still a life.

      Couldn't read all of the poem as it was too poignant for me, but am glad you shared it here. There are too many hurting women, too many lost little ones. On the note of stem cell research, it is important to mention whether we are talking about embryonic or adult, though it isn't hard to guess which you mean here.

      What a heart wrenching poem Clive. It certainly is a sad reality. There are so many other alternatives. A difficult but necessary read. Thank you for writing this. Voted up.

      Hello Joyce, From what i have read you must be a well experinced adult. If you are with child it is a gift and you should not end a life because someone things selfishly. Try not to stress out yourself as stress will be fed to your unborn child. I am sorry to hear he also changed his mind, but guess what, you couldn't have become pregnant on your own. He is as much responsible for this child. A man should never ask to terminate his child as when that child is born, he will regret that thought for his entire life. All i can tell you is a life is a life, respect life, love life and as a woman, you are able to bring life.
