I never wanted to be
a small matter
But I was conceived.

I never wanted to become
a bigger particle
But I somehow developed.

I never wanted to sense
my being
But I got aware of my existence.

I never wanted to feel
so helpless
But I was cocooned in this womb.

I never wanted to stay
But she tried to stunt my growth.

I never wanted to swallow
this bitter taste
But she needed to push me out.

I never wanted to mix
with the elements
But I found myself decaying.

I never wanted to drown
in the dark
But I was not given the right to survive.

I wanted to shout
from this hidden depth
But it's too late now to save her or me.
