I know what you are all thinking
is keeping this child inside me a mistake?
What if they decide to become a murderer, a rapist like their father, a thief?
what if they are born from hate and therefore can only hate
what if they are the next hitler, the next Hussein?
What if this child despises me for what they are?
what if they do not love me back
what if they never learn from their father to throw a baseball
or ride their bike with their dad
what if they hate me for not knowing half of their history
But what if my child, not even born is brilliant
what if they are the kindest person in the world
what if they are the one to discover a cure for cancer
what if they are meant to win the next nobel prize?
there is so much good left in this world, is it possible that my child could be?
