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!
