I am in my mother’s womb waiting to be born

Made by my Creator, I am wondrously formed

My little body’s growing from my little nose

Down to my tiny fingers and my tiny toes

My heart’s beating within me just like your heart beats too

I only want the chance for life like your mother gave to you

Who knows who I might become if only given time

Consider for a moment, it’s not your life it’s mine

How can you stop a miracle, I just can’t comprehend

I beg you not to take my life, not to make it end

Please let me breath my first breathe, let me have a voice

Dear God let them understand I’m a child I’m not a choice
