Tick Tock

November 15, 2008
By Traci Van D., Durham, NC

Hurry, the more time it takes
the more guilt I will feel.

Hurry, I don't want it any older!

Hurry, I can't bear to see it,
I would never be able to get through this.

Hurry, I feel like a murderer.

You are one and the same...

Slow down, it doesn't matter if I'm one day old
or one week in the womb,
you will still be killing me.

Slow down, I want to live.

Slow down, if you could just see
how much we need each other.

Mother, you are killing me.
You and only you are my murderer.
