Abortion Poem

I feel very strongly about abortion and read about and know about a lot of people that have had abortions. To me it is murder and killing a soul before it has a chance. God creates these souls inside a mother's body so they can be born, not murdered. I hope you enjoy this poem, it's the deepest I have.

That's not true. There is ALWAYS an option! There is adoption and many adoptive couples help pay for expenses of having a baby! So many women will never be able to produce their own life and...

My Almost Mother


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011 with permission of the author.

You steal my life,
I have no chance,
I want to live,
And find life's romance.

You strike me down,
Do you have no soul?
I thought you would love me,
'Cause I love you so.

I call you mother,
And father too,
But you kill me,
And it doesn't bother you.

Do you wonder what I would be,
Do you wonder what I am,
I wanted to be a football player,
To be your little man.

My birthday was yesterday,
The one you got to miss,
But I'm up in Heaven,
With all of death's gifts.

God loves me,
I hope you love me too,
But it doesn't look like it,
Since I'm not there with you.

I hope you know I love you,
I love you very much,
But I wish you could hear my voice,
And feel my baby touch.

My heart started to beat,
When you killed me in cold blood,
My ears started to hear your voice,
It was a warming flood.

You felt me kick,
You never heard me talk,
How can you be so heartless,
To not want to see your baby walk.

I'll never have a kid myself,
Nor will my sister have a brother,
I would have protected her,
But you never protected me...

Goodbye now and forever...
My Almost Mother.

Hello. It has come to my attention through many hateful comments that this poem is harsh and hurts people. I would just like to say that I was 14 when I wrote and published this; just after my mother had had an abortion. My intentions were not to hurt anyone. I do not claim that this poem is strictly based on religion, because it's not. I did not write this because I am a Christian. I wrote this because I was young and hurt. Everyone has the right to share their opinion, and at the time this was mine. A 14 year old girl and you all are shaming her and making her feel horrible about herself, so shame on you too. She wasn't aware of the people she would hurt. You all are very well aware. So please think about who you might be hurting by commenting these sort of things, because I didn't think of it whenever I wrote this.
Thank you.

To Carolyn and anyone else who did not like this poem--remember that the writer has the same right to share their opinion as you do. You are not pro life if you can find ANY reason to choose to kill a living being. This poem was very tastefully written, not to mention from an excellent point of view--the victim who will never have a voice of their own to speak out. I believe anyone who is offended by this poem has their own demons they are fighting, maybe guilt they are feeling, and this hit home for them. Abortion is wrong--no exceptions. If you do not agree, then don't read the poem. Simple as that.
To the writer--beautiful poem. Very sad but the truth is sometimes very sad and hard to handle.

This poem is hurtful! Sure you can have your opinion but this poem is just a tool to judge. My mother aborted a baby not because she didn't love him, but because she couldn't bring him into the world knowing she wouldn't be able to give him the life, the baby deserved. What right do you have to judge that decision? Mothers who give up their babies in abortions most of the time, have no other option! They already feel like the worse person in the world and now you increase the feeling, hope you realize how hurtful that is?

That's not true. There is ALWAYS an option! There is adoption and many adoptive couples help pay for expenses of having a baby! So many women will never be able to produce their own life and live in sorrow, while other women slaughter (LITERALLY SLAUGHTER) their unborn. Sorry. You're wrong.

You have no right to judge another person, this poem serves only to judge and make others feel horrible about an already horrible decision they have had to make for whatever personal reasons they felt they had to make it. You walk a mile in someone else's shoes and even then you never have to live their life. You anti abortion people call yourself Christians and then turn around and make yourselves God almighty. Judge. jury and executioner on other peoples souls. What gives you the right? I don't call it Christian.

I've not long had an abortion and I know it's not right but in certain circumstances it's different, your poem hurt me and probably others too, fair enough you don't agree but we aren't all heartless mothers, I regret what I've done everyday but I also know it was for the best, most of us love our babies but for different reasons they just couldn't be born!! So before you put your opinion out there think of others feelings!

I thought your poem was kind of harsh. I know a lot of woman that have had abortions and they later regret it. You are hurting a lot of people by this poem.

I also am pro~life so I don't hate your poem. I just don't feel like this is the forum for it because there seems to be a lot of hurting people on here who are full of regret and your poem makes it sound like only heartless monsters would ever have a abortion.

I am 16 and I live in foster care. At the start of the summer I was raped by a boy in the house where I was staying. I didn't realize I was pregnant until September and I really did want to keep it. I want a child, but when I'm older. I got it aborted but I really regret it. but equally, I do not know if I would have been able to give birth to it knowing how it was conceived, and I could never have put him/her into foster care because I know what it's like and I could never put a child through that.

My baby just died today, over an abortion....her mother had other goals to chase, but all I wanted was just to hold her/him in my arms. I loved him/her with all my heart, I felt helpless and unloving the minute it started happening, it was as if she was crying out for my help when the doctor was busy sucking her out. I believe she felt pain, I know I did too! After reading these poems I cried over and over again. I'll never feel whole again.

This poem is so true. I had abortions many, many years ago and I now constantly cry, plead and beg God and the babies for forgiveness. I know God has forgiven me but I will never forgive myself. I am tormented and slowly destroying myself for what I did but I deserve no mercy. I wish I could turn back time and undo the horror that I did.
