The Choice


I can't forgive myself now
Knowing what I know
When it was my choice
The baby had to go
An ugly fate when the choice was mine
More than grateful it belonged to her
In spite of the consequences
Conceived in a frightening blur
Nor can I begin to imagine
The courage in not knowing
Maybe a demon inside her
Or proof of humanity showing
A seed of dark circumstance
Blooming in her gut
Half angel half rapist
Doomed to be a slut
Our choices have been so different
Our paths share no heavy tread
My achievements were her failures
From her ignorance I was fed
No other choice for her to make
I was indeed her child
Surveying the yield of her ruins
I wonder if she's proud
Did she get the last laugh
Her attackers' violence drowned
