I am the one the world has waited for
I have the answer for disease and war
I come as your little bundle of joy
I hope you don't mind that I'm a boy

We don't need another child today
We have to stop them coming this way
We don't even want to see your face
We need to minify the human race

I come with my hands lifted up to you
I want to live; you need me, you do
I wish you'd consider again your choice
I ask you to listen and hear my voice

We've made our decision; you must go
We have to end your life you know
We don't want you to take this wrong
We're asking you to just be strong

I didn't choose to be a spark of life
I know now we must face this strife
I want you to know I'm forgiving you
I love you whatever you choose to do

That is very sad and sweet

Well done! Poetry can hard to write, especially when you want it to rhyme, but your poem flows really well.

How wonderful it would be if unborn children could speak to us like your poem does.
