    LIFE I CHOSE NOT

    Hadn't I chosen a life?
    A life: whose destiny I can't rewrite.
    Hadn't my narratives been scripted?
    The path I am made to ply.

    At times, at times I had wanted,
    At times, at times I had wished,
    But I can't rewrite this fate.
    If destiny's written,
    What will a mortal do?

    If it were possible for a fetus to talk,
    If it were possible for an unborn child to speak,
    I would have this fate negotiated,
    I would have chosen a more fairer life.
    This is the life I'm made live,
    I hope to live it well!
