The Seed Inside

The Seed Inside


I didn’t rape you it wasn’t my fault

You should have aborted me, just called a halt.

Instead I was born and burdened with blame

You spent your years anointing me with the shame

From day of conception inside your womb

You detested my being and the hate did consume

I’m sorry dear mother but what DID I do

I’m just the seed that grew inside you.
