Song Of The Unborn Child

by Tammi Camilletti
      I lay in my cozy cocoon
Waiting to emerge as a butterfly
      Yet I tremble with fear
I feel mom's agony and pain
     She and dad had another fight
It's always about me
     And I haven't done anything yet
     He wants to end my life
What life I scream I've yet to live
     Sure you can hear my heartbeat
But I know there is more to life than that
      I have roads to travel and hills to climb
There is school to attend and friends to make
     Who knows I could even become president
If only you give me a chance
