Crying~ a Poem to an unhappy mother

Updated on July 23, 2015

Lupita is the founder of Vegan Health and Yoga and is completing a masters in holistic nutrition. She is also writing a novel.


This poem was written as a voice for all children born with an unhappy mother, who are unloved and unwanted. How a mother could even fathom leaving their child is inconceivable but to leave them in a dumpster?! It is beyond belief yet it happens. There are mothers today who struggle to feed their kids every single day but they wouldn’t even think of giving up on their kids. Some women can only dream of becoming a mom. This poem came from the sadness of my heart after hearing the horrifying news of a baby abandoned in a trash can. Just how can a mother be that unhappy and cruel!??.


I was sent to this world

for you, from heaven.

Left your womb

into the cold

and started crying.

Into the hands of a stranger

lifting me,


Wrapping me, as a gift

for someone,


Hungry and cold, I wait

for warmth and love,


Is anybody there?

My defender, provider?

Does anyone care where I go or belong?


in this strange cold place,


I hear her!

Her words, the familiar voice,

so near

yet so far away,


Longing for her,

for holding,

for protection, security

for my belonging

my relying.

Ignored, crying.

She doesn't come,

and there's no one.

I'm just left alone.

Hopefully found by anyone,

or no one,


What will I do?

What will happen to me?

I'm tired

of crying.

I'm still alone,

      Thank you Senoritaa and Ryem, what was more heartbreaking was trying to write it well enough to convey the feelings felt by these children to others! :(

      This poem is absolutely heartbreaking and you wrote it well.

      I feel for the terrible loss of the child, and the thoughtlessness of adults who have babies out of their moments of weakness, without realizing the consequences. The only ones who suffer are the young ones. Thanks for your poem. Worth a share.

      What an exquisite and gloomy hub which does bring attention to these babies and how they must feel. I know it brought tears to my eyes.

      @livingsta Thank you, and appreciate you for sharing this... if my words could reach out to even one mom who had thoughts to harm her baby, then maybe she can think twice and get help instead!

      @prettynutjob30 Thank you for reading! It also makes me wonder why they were blessed with children in the first place as well, but I believe God gives us a choice to make in our life. He may know what will happen but He gives us a chance to decide...

      This is such a sad poem, I have always felt so much disgust towards anyone who would hurt or leave their child. I sometimes wonder why they were blessed with a child to begin with.

      Awesomely written. So heart breaking to hear things like these.

      Very touching! Motherhood, indeed is not for everyone and not every woman who gave birth can be called a mother. Sadly, there are monstrous ones.

      Wonderful hub! Up, pinning and sharing!

      Love from the sky~

      Thanks for taking the time to read, I know this one was probably just as hard to read as it was to write it!

      It's a very touching piece, lupita. Children are God-sent angels. We are all lucky to be one at one point in our lives.

      Thanks for your interest hawaiian, it was a difficult poem to write because I tried to empathize with how it could possibly feel to be thrown away after being born. Appreciate your compassionate attention to this inhumane topic.

      Wow! How moving and spiritually purposeful a poem! Beautiful, sad, amazing all at once, while simultaneously being a gifted warning to humanity. Thank you for provoking our minds to ponder this social injustice and our hearts to be more compassionate.
