POETRY: My Baby
Ashley Milian, 17
Bronx, NY

For my baby I will cry
For my baby I will try
My unborn baby believe mommy will cry
Believe I know I lost you to a lie
Believe I know I’ve lost and can’t say why
Believe I know I lost all control
How mommy did want you so
Believe I know if things were different
You would be growing in my womb
More and more different
Believe mommy will try
Though I have lost some self pride
I know I will not forget you
Every day I will think of you
But regret to have never met you
Life for you
Who did not get to live
And be a better mother ’cause of you?
