to the mother that left her child there to die

MAMA!
Mama why?
You didn’t even give me a chance to stare you in the eyes.
I was as good as new and you took it all away.
I had dreams too.
God had plans for me, instead it left me blue.
 
I fought for my life that cold night .
I thought you loved me mamma!
God sent me down to earth.
He never told me that you would let me die at birth.
He said you are an angel, my angel.
He said you’d call me Rachel.
 
I was going to make you proud you know.
I am back in heaven now because of you.
Those people that shamed you because of me.
Wait a minute it wasn’t my fault, was it mamma?
They don’t even love you like i do.
I am back in heaven now because of you.
 
I wish you could see the pain i had inside me.
I wish you could feel it with me.
Maybe then you wouldn’t have dumped me.
Dumped me in an old garbage bin in the street.

Some time back there was a case like this down my street it really struck me. I had to write something to express how I felt. This little baby, that's absolutely no control over dying or staying alive was left to die by the person that should love her the most.

Is this about abortion ? I think it could make a lot of people see how terrible it is.
