Mama Hear My Cry..!

T’was a few years ago that a short bent old lady climbed up to my office and plonked herself in front of me. “What are your views on abortion Bob?” she asked. I shrugged my shoulders indifferently. “Have you ever thought of the unborn babe?” she asked, “That it will never breathe the air you breathe? Feel joy and pain like you do? Can you hear it cry Bob?” she asked and went away.
I heard it cry alright and words rushed out onto computer screen as I shivered with dread at the weeping voice I was hearing:
Mama Hear My Cry..!
Ah mama I’m so happy here, to be inside of you
But you never speak like others do of when your baby’s due.
I hear the other mamas say ‘my baby’s due in May
June, July, August.. its gonna be a Happy day’
But you oh mama never talk like others ’bout your baby’s birth?
Oh mama will I ever see your wondrous, lovely earth?

Oh can’t you hear me mama dear, my pain my agony
That I may never ever see the one who’s outside carrin’ me?
Oh hear my cry my mummy dear, so close right now, so near
Oh hear my cry, do I cry in vain? Oh can’t you feel my pain?

Ah mama, I feel so secure to be here inside of you.
The sounds, the sights, the smells are new, but I’m not afraid
No not afraid, because you’re there mama, aren’t you?
You’ll fight for me won’t you my dear?
And take away this strange, strange fear.
That somehow I may never see the face
Of you who carried me these days!

Oh can’t you hear me mama dear, my pain my agony
That I may never ever see the one who’s outside carrin’ me?
Oh hear my cry my mummy dear, so close right now, so near
Oh hear my cry, do I cry in vain? Oh can’t you feel my pain?

Ah mama say it ain’t true of what you’re gonna do
That you ain’t no butcher mama dear, that will hack me in two
That you won’t let rough cruel hands, touch me mama dear
Oh mama say it ain’t true, please take away my fear
Don’t stand so silent mother. Don’t let them do this to me
I am your little, precious child, your sweet, darlin’ baby!
Oh can’t you hear me mama dear, my pain my agony
That I may never ever see the one who’s now outside carryin’ me?
Oh hear my cry my mummy dear, so close right now, so near
Oh hear my cry, do I cry in vain?
Mother why can’t you feel my pain?

  1. Brought tears to my eyes, Bob. How can we do this ? and yet we do… Will it ever stop ? Carelessly being done, over and over again – ever-increasingly. 😪

  2. Strange creatures humans! We cannot create an ant but can kill any other life form, small or big.
    Insensitivity us worse than cruelty or crime.
