Choices

Words and Music by John W. Vitz

Dedicated to my dearly departed friend, Patricia Driscoll

 

 

Hey there, little one

You never had a chance.

You never saw a video.  You never learned to dance.

You never got to laugh out loud or run in from the rain.

You’ll never do a single thing again.

 

Hey there, little one

You really missed a lot.

You missed out on your hopes and dreams and no one shared your thoughts.  

You missed out on your birthday and you’ll never be a wife.

‘Cause someone else’s Choices trumped your chance to have a life.

 

Ten little fingers, ten tiny toes,

Ten weeks in utero and God only knows

That your little heart is beating as your little body grows.

But don’t get too excited ‘cause you’re just an “embryo.”

 

Hey there, little one,

So small and all alone.

With no one there to hold you now; you know you’re on your own.

For you’re the one who really has the most at stake to lose.

‘Cause someone told your mommy that she had a right to choose. 

 

Ten little fingers, ten tiny toes,

Ten weeks in utero and God only knows

That your little heart is beating as your little body grows.

But don’t get too excited ‘cause you’re someone else’s woe.

No, please don’t get your hopes up ‘cause you’re just an “embryo.”
