Aborted

-

Ah! The child's mind speaks out-

Questioning what it's about,

Speaking, asking, seeking still.

They demand-

Silence.

-

Ah! The child's eyes are bright

Gleaming in the dead of night-

Calling out in fear for help

To hear-

Annoyance.

-

Ah! The child's arm is sore.

It is throbbing more and more.

Seeking comforting and peace

To be left-

Untended.

-

Ah! Hear the child's cry.

What does it mean to live and die?

The soul is reaching for the light

To remain-

In darkness.

-

Ah! The child's tears flow down

Why does Mummy, Daddy frown?

Slow distortion of a soul

Fully under

Their control.
