Abort the child

Abort the child

“Please do me favor and abort the child”
 He gently approached and sought my shield
 I was taken a back and looked in his eyes
 But failed to understand what he intended or tried to

 “I want some more time to be father”
 How can I permit him for such thing as mother?
 He can run away from the responsibility
 But what would I answer to the almighty?

 I simply stared at him and wondered
 What all he had promised and offered?
 To keep me in good mood and safe
 Now he wanted great sacrifice from me to be safe

 I decided not to budge or relent
 I kept mum and waited for his comments
 He had taken me for granted and was very much sure
 That I may consent and willingly assure

 My heart bled for while and cried
 Eyes had shed too much and silently dried
 He had almost his command and tried
 I stood firm in my stand and openly defied

 “I shall not be part of inhuman act”
 The child is mine and that is open fact
 We are jointly responsible for his/her birth
 How can we prefer untimely death?

 I was in raging mood and disobeyed
 My wished were silently conveyed
 Either he must accept me as it is
 Or make the way with his choice

 I was not prepared to rebel against inner voice
 Even if there was little left with me as choice
 How can we be that cruel to birth of child?
 When we had jointly explored the field

 “No dear, there can't be any other way”
 Child has to come on this earth any way
 I shall take care of everything and survive
 Tell me precisely what you think or believe?
