The voice of the Fallen Baby, by KONGNYUY Derrick

God said I had a purpose and prepared a womb for me to enter

My first home was so great I thought I’d stay in it forever

Felt like the best 9 months ever but my first lesson « nothing lasts forever »

I knew I will miss the warmth and comfort but I couldn’t wait to meet my mother

My new home may not be this awesome but Mama’s love will make it better

I was close to the door and I could hear mama screaming in pain, the sounds broke my heart but I hoped to bring her joy in return

I made it ! Mama held me in her arms and I could feel a new fountain of excess love

I didn’t know what the world had in store for me but in her arms I knew I was safe

Days went by and all was well, months went by and something began to feel strange

The pounding motions I always felt on mama’s chest, they now seem to always pound faster

Loud and frightful sounds outside like claps of thunder, could that be what is bothering my mother ?

I wish I could speak so I tell mama all will be alright, I have a destiny to fulfil so all will be alright

Could hear footsteps coming and I laid there smiling, for each time people came mama got gifts for me

My smile was short lived as the door was smashed open, mama was crying I watched her imploring

Do they hate my mother ? Do they hate me ?

The big men turned to me as I heard mama wailing ! I did not know I was recording my last moments

I thought I had a destiny, I thought I would bring mama joy

But she cried as I came to the world and cried as I made my exit

It’s not fair, God gave me life and I deserve to live. Why take my life when you never gave it to me ?

The world will hear about me and people will know I once was, I hope my story helps heal mama’s world.
