       A womb with a different view.

    It is not pretty.

    dotsThe Choicedots

    Floating, floating through space,
    securely fastened to the mother ship,
    he drifted in the nebulous surroundings
    he had learned to call home.

    At times stretching his arms and legs,
    he marveled at this wondrous void,
    pondering where this mission would lead.
    All systems were "Go!" on this ride.

    A sudden jolt and a piercing pain
    sent him spinning out of control.
    Hands clutching the thin line firmly;
    his body began writhing and convulsing.

    As his lungs screamed for oxygen,
    fear gripped him with cold, firm claws.
    Helpless, he fought with every muscle,
    every fiber of his being, to survive.

    Death arrived in a matter of minutes.
    All he had known was swept away quickly.
    The choice had been made.
    His mother didn't need a baby right now.

      This is very controversial for me... yeah, sounds funny, but it's all because of what I believe in. I do believe in God, I was born in a catholic family, but I do not believe in church and the rules of this community. Still, I believe in RESPONSIBILITY, people are responsible for each other, mother is responsible for the life of her child. Still, I don't treat this matter ruthlessly. But enough of that.

    I would like to say I'm impressed by your careful, pure and flawless style. It was very well written, the idea's very good and moving. Makes think.

    "His mother didn't need a baby right now"

    but is it always that way?

    Anyway - a very good writing. You play with words like it comes to you so naturally, it's a wonderful experience to read such pieces.

      This is a very emotional piece and so many people have different feelings about this subject, You have written and expressed it very well and so hearfelt, I am a strong believer in Faith and alot of my poems reflect my Faith in God. Every life should have the right to have a chance in this world, God blesses a woman with a beautful gift of a child not to destroy it but to nurture and help it grow and learn and to live life. This was beautifully written and I will add this one to my favorites I hope more people will read this one and leave a comment as well it truely grabs your heart and it did mine. God Bless you.

      I like how you described a foetus' sense of wonder, likened the whole thing to a space mission. And at the end, sadly, the deadly decision made. But I think, compared to your other works, this isn't as 'poetic' as it can be.

      Eh, abortion.. like anything else, there is a time and a place for everything.
    Not much for 'casual abortions' though.
    However once again you threw a wonderful twist into your writing.
    Once again on a brave subject.
    Once again enthralling and well written.
    Did I mention you were my poetic hero?
    Gah I'm going to have to stop commenting on you. I think this is going to end up in a predicatble trend of commenting.

      This poem brought me to the verge of tears... It was so touching, so realistic. I have ALWAYS been pro-life. I was born two months premature, and my mother would have known it would be that way, because my biological older sister was a premie too. She was not married, she worked a long day at a factory, and made very little money, and already had a four year old daughter to take care of. But I thank God every day for the choice SHE made... the choice to keep me, the choice to give me up for adoption and give me a chance at life instead of thinking of herself and not of me. This poem was so close to home for me, perhaps that is why I found it so touching, but God, I loved this one! Thank you for sharing, maybe it will successfully change the twisted views some people have, because life should be the one thing this world protects over everything else. God bless

      Very Heartwrenching indeed... and to think that a whether to spare the little life inside of you or not is a "choice" is absurd to me. Every child deserves a chance at life- to stretch their little arms and legs and breathe the air- have a chance to live- and love- (I'm with ya there) Not an easy subject to write about for sure- but this was very well written and will for sure evoke alot of emotion in others as it did in me. Thanks for cementing my views even further. I just have to add this to my favorites- God bless- Heather

      I suppose you have heard some hell for this one...
    and you probably brought some woman to tears and guilt...(thankfully I have never had to make that decision and hopefully for I am a smart girl...I never will have to)
    abortion is a cruel things...as your poem portrays it...
    I am at a loss of much more to say
    and your words way heavy on my heart...
    a complicated thought provoking piece...
