Description: This is just a piece I wrote about two years ago. I had just been accepted into university when this experience occured, and was feeling really torn, and confused.
General feedback, feelings, thoughts thanks.
Date of Termination (D.O.T) -------------------------------------------
It only takes one moment to create you,
Many moments to decide you,
A second to regret you.
And a lifetime to forget you.
For my mistake you must pay.
I will feel guilty everyday.
I dont want to do this to you,
But no matter what I do
You see, I am destined to lose.
If I give you life, I am sacrificing my own.
If I send you home early, I will forever be alone.
Because of my stupidity...A beautiful life will be lost.
I know that I should raise you up, No matter what the cost.
I have a life and have lived some.
You haven't breathed a breath.
Yet I have the ordassity to snatch that away from you as if it was my right.
I have no rights.
I am wrong. Whatever I choose is wrong.
I should never have ended up in this situation.
My stupidity. My mistake not yours.
However...You must pay.
And I will feel guilty everday.
I really like the first paragraph. I like how you use the time line to show importance of each thing in order. I wish I knew the whole story of what was happening, but I guess that is what makes poetry so much fun, and so interesting. Nice write and good job.
oh, wow... that's so... *sighs* i can see how you could connect yourself to my poem. i never really aggreed with abortion either.. but sometimes, a girl has to. even if they have the baby, they wouldnt be able to support it or some excuse like that. i know its taking away a life that never had a chance... its something you will have to bare the rest of your life. its sad, but so true.
