This post might be anything you make it out to be. 



Trickle after trickle,

Lump after lump,

You made your way out.

Like a chipped tooth,

They rejected you.

Like a leper,

They cast you away.

Deprived of playmates,

Starved of love,

Denied a chance.

They got rid of the bad apple

Before the barrel got rotten.

Making hay while sun shines,

They whispered to quench their guilt.

Not a soul was told,

Not a thought was spared.

You were gone.

Your blood tortured them,

Night was a curse,

Sleep, a chore,

You haunted their dreams.

You cried for justice,

You wept for redemption,

Your persistency tortured them.

The world never met you,

Maybe you were our saviour,

Maybe you were our doom,

We would never know.

    For personal reasons this piece saddens me, but excellent write up.

    I read this piece with a heavy heart. Abortion is one of the most horrifying experiences a person can live with.

    That harrowing thought of knowing you “denied someone a chance” to live. Deprived of playmates. Starved of love ..

    The climax is the concluding part where the Poet introduces uncertainty. Maybe the aborted child would have been a Steve Job or Hitler.

    The poem is rich in imagery with a somewhat morbid theme. The tone is macabre and mood, lugubrious. An elergy to our GIRLFRIENDS’ unsong foetus.

    Nice piece.
