In Paradise on Sunlight Street
I’ll convene with the coterie in the day
Caliginous yet precise, there’s a balance we must strike
To stay aligned while we play, while some angels say;

“Her life did not begin at conception…
It is your solemn ‘choice’ to expose her bones and rip her heart away”

From Paradise, where we eagerly anticipate our upcoming, coming of age
And project how nice now must be for those elders
Who already have been born to that stage, still thee angels claim;

“Life is at the mother’s discretion…
And to give her a voice would be to jeopardize that prerogative someday”

In Paradise, when it’s quiet we can hear
The eerie echos of the past moans of the other’s voice
Rudely awaken at night and taken away from their homes
Away from their homes, for reasons unknown
Into the darkness to nevermore cast eyes on the Day

“Life is but a random selection, collisions of dust…
Inside a closed system unaffected by any realm not portrayed”

Like Paradise, where I can sense the concern
And confusion in my mother these days
The daunting prospect of my delivery
Has led to her decision to send me away
Mother please let me stay, mommy please let me stay
I swear that I will make you very proud someday
