Failure to Communicate

by Ebonyavon


My mother never listens
	My daughter wonít talk to me
I canít tell her what Iím going to do
	I have this gut feelingÖ
She wouldnít understand
	I know whatís going on
If only she could help me
	If only she would let me help her
Itís my responsibility, my mistake
	She doesnít have to do this alone
Iím patiently waiting for morning
	Tomorrow my daughter will have an   
        abortion
My decision has been made
	I wish she would reconsider
There is no one here to hold me
	I wish I could hold my child
Tonight I pray for forgiveness
	Tonight I pray for forgiveness
