Choose Life

A baby comes to life at once, Begins to feed and grow.
Mother starts acting strange, Yet she does not know.
The baby grows and is finally seen What goes through Mother's mind?
What is Father thinking about? Are the parents cruel or kind?
The doctor says it'ss easy, Everything will be taken care of,
The baby will be killed in days, Whatever happened to love?
The baby sees the tools approach, This must be a bad dream!
As limbs are torn apart he thinks, "Why can't you hear me scream?"
Mother starts to walk away Her baby now is dead
And Father will not comfort her When she feels regret.
