Abortion Poem

I was going through a hard time in my life and thought a baby would make everything better. I wasn't actively trying, but when I fell pregnant I just knew it wasn't the right time. I wasn't with the father and couldn't face bringing a child up on my own and not giving them the best life. so I decided to have an abortion, it was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, I know it was the right thing to do and when my time comes, and I'm in love I hope I'll be a wonderful mum.

My Sweet Baby

© Amy
my life was a mess
my head constantly spinning
I didn't know what to do
so I prayed for a new beginning
I wished for you
but when my wish came true
I didn't have a clue what to do
you were only with me for a little while
your sex not even determined
but deep down I knew
this wasn't the time for you
so I made a selfish decision
and chose my life over yours
I gave you back to god
and hoped again for a new beginning
you never got to see me
or even open your eyes
but please believe me when I say
you will be with me forever
please don't hate me
or let your death be in vain
because you taught me a lesson
to hope for a future again
I promise to be a better person
and learn from my mistakes
but my only ever wish will be to have seen your face
I love you my sweet baby
wherever you may be
I cant wait to meet you
but for now please be free
