Right Of Life

© Ashley
Taken away because of the fear of responsibility,
Taken away and denied opportunity
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didnít 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, didnít you love me?
Couldnít 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, didnít you love me?

Taken away and denied my life,
Taken away in such a strife
Taken away so I could not be.
Oh, mama, didnít 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.

  • 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.
