Luna/Lune - A Poem about Abortion
A young woman named Kayla approached me recently and asked me if I'd post this poem for her. It's a poem about her abortion, and the poem is dedicated to her baby who is now in heaven with the Lord. She asked me to post this because she has not yet been able to find the strength to do it herself. Brothers and sisters in Christ, please pray for Kayla.
The world should have been yours;
The words I speak cannot express my apology and grief.
The regret I feel is not only out of guilt;
You were my gift and I fell short.
My mistake was not having enough faith in myself,
in my friends, in my family, and most importantly in God's help.
Maternal instincts tossed away...
My responsibility was to you;
Not to what they need or say.
I wish I could kiss your belly and make you smile.
I would have gotten to, if I'd just waited a while.
If you are in heaven and I go to hell,
the worst part would be not being able tell
God how much I see what a gift that you were to me.
Whether God chooses to forgive me or not,
I hope one thing...
I hope you get the chance to see the spring.
To be held and loved;
To taste, touch, and explore!
You deserve it all and much, much more!
I love you, I love you...
I wish you were here!
Nothing will ever replace you, my dear.
It may be hard for you to believe,
but please, if you look down and see I'm ok,
just know I would rather have you all the way!
A life equal or better than mine;
Lost to fear, a mistake and crime.
