But mom, why?
Why do you detest me so much?
Did you and dad not engineer my coming?
Is it my fault that dad absconded?
Could you not have continued loving me?
How loved and pampered
I felt in your womb
I was breathing and happy in there
How I wish I stayed there forever
But you took me to that clinic room
And forcefully removed me
What if I refuse to come back to you
What if the creator refused
To replace me with another
What if your womb
Can no longer accommodate us
I wonder if you thought of all of these
