If I could speak my voice
I would cry out
From the mountain tops
Across the seas
And from all nationalities

I am not just an egg as you suppose
I am and I have a living soul

And without any regard for my life
You have decided to destroy me

Mommy why are you playing with my life
Take us up from off this table
And bring us home

Give me a chance to live
You will see
I will make you very proud of me.

I move about inside of you
I don’t mean to hurt you,
But to let you know
I am a part of you.

Please don’t destroy my life,
Give me a chance
And the next Rembrandt, doctor, or leader I might be

Oh mommy why, why are you aborting me?
