A poetic allegory that contemplates life and the conception of state.
I've been pregnant for years
But now I'm choosing abortion
I was told it carried life
But it was only a distortion
The State, its allegiance
It's just an endless devotion
To a fetus of a culture
That caters corrosion

The seeded conception
Birthing democracy
It seemed so paramount
The fulfillment of prophecy
But I have labored in vain
There's no source of a prodigy
There is no life in this womb
That wasn't entombed in dishonesty

Completely indoctrinated
To believe the illusion
I'd follow every propagation
Preached from the institution
They told me how to think
Gave me a constitution
And then left me in despair
With a lifeless resolution

And at every trimester
I was examined and prodded
To be sure I'd give birth
Only to what they allotted
I didn't think of it then
How it was all so well guarded
To be blind from the truth
That the inside was rotted

A system deformed
And completely polluted
By the doctrines injected
All profusely intruded
Every act regulated
Every decision concluded
You just followed command
No matter how much it wounded

The pains and the anguish
The abuse and the bondage
The lies and deceit
All paying a homage
To a culture of rape
That violently responded
To force its way of life
And to keep you a hostage

But I am ending this burden
I will sever its ties
I will cut from my heart
What I once idolized
Because what they claimed was hope
All I see now were lies
A mass that is lifeless
And meant to despise

I will not birth wars
I will not birth hatred
No more genocide
Will not be willing to aid it
By no amount of majority
Will I be changed nor persuaded
Let all of history show
That the State is not sacred
