The aborted child

I have a knife
That cuts me wide
I hung it by
The corridor

Same corridor
I walk barefooted
Naked as a child
Free as the wind…

Yet in a cage
Of my shadow
That never was
And never be…

The door to life
Opens to all
But we take side
Shutting the doors..

I am that child
Who never came
Because you flushed
Before I did.

Maybe my path
Would have brought eggs
A yoke that can
Transform the world.

Most time you pray
Another comes
Your womb you blocked
With my dried flesh

What do you gain
On shallow thoughts
You killed me for
Your own comfort…

I had my right
To truly taste life
But you once said
I am a cell…

The door to life
You place a knife
Yet you say; I…
Should have come out.
