A for Abandoned




She had felt it grow,
From a cell to a fully formed baby.



She caressed her bloated stomach, tenderly,

"It better be a normal boy this time" he barked.



Love gave way to fear in her eyes and heart...

Tears made her vision blurry.



A dull ache in her heart brought back memories of her previous two children.



Finally, the D-day arrived...

The last thing she remembered was doctor administering the anaesthesia...



When she finally woke up, 
After what seemed hours,

In a strange surrounding,
In an unknown place.
All alone...





Abandoned... with her stillborn daughter.
