Beneath My Breast

I feel a fear I’ve never known
A panic in my chest
The dice of fate have now been thrown
There’s a life beneath my breast
Where do I go, what do I do
My mind is filled with doubt
Can this be real, can this be true
Should I try to find a way out
Advice I get from all around
“How nice, you’ll be a mother”
But as I feel my heartbeats pound
I fear I may be smothered
A month goes by, I hesitate
Unsure of how I feel
“Don’t take too long, ‘ere it’s too late”
My thoughts begin to reel
Another month, and then one more
And still I do not know
Please help me, Lord, what is in store
If I let this baby grow
Then finally I make a choice
Deciding what to do
But still I hear an inner voice
Say this is not for you
Now I lay upon a table
Feeling scared and sick
Still not certain if I’m able…
Then I feel my baby kick
This is my child I realize
Now fully wide awake
I see so clear with open eyes
I’ll not make this sad mistake
I leave this place of slaughter
With lightness in my chest
I love you, son or daughter
You’re the life beneath my breast
