I never chose to be made
Or tell father to abandon ship
I never chose to be created
No gun in holster at my hip
Planted in your womb for lack of choice
To you I am nothingness. Null. Void.
Where else was I to grow?
In pursuit to be perfect me
A million others I had to fight
Just to be conceived
Now your blood boils
Survival has become toil
You pump me into obesity with wrong
Malnourish me with no right
You have rejected me
I tried hard to reach full term
But full term feels an eternity
When you’ve never belonged
Why have you rejected me?
I do but I don’t understand
Where shall I go and how will I survive
If you won’t lend a helping hand?
So I will fight, must fight to get to light
And will raise myself like no other
I may be premature, but I’ll be alright
‘Til I find a new home to call mother
