very touching... If only everyone could read this because, just maybe it could change the mind of that one person who is considering to let their baby go.

Right Of Life

Taken away because of the fear of responsibility,
Taken away and denied opportunity
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didn't you love me?

Taken away after a life so short,
Taken away and pushed to abort
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didn't you love me?
Couldn't you see that I too, had the same right to opportunity?

I began to grow inside you,
I know you were scared,
But mama,
I was too.

Taken away because of your fear of society,
Taken away because it was against your sense of propriety
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didn't you love me?

Taken away and denied my life,
Taken away in such a strife
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didn't you love me?

You see, mama,
A life so short is not a life,
A life so short was taken without a possible fight
A life so short ended with no right.
Mama,
That was my life.
