Be careful what you wish for.

Why?

You wanted a child

You wanted a child More than anything

You wanted a child More than anything You prayed every night

You wanted a child More than anything You prayed every night That you would get pregnant

A few months later

A few months later Your prayer was answered

A few months later Your prayer was answered And the doctor told that,

A few months later Your prayer was answered And the doctor told that, You were pregnant

You invited family and friends

You invited family and friends You celebrated and rejoiced

You invited family and friends You celebrated and rejoiced I was very happy

You invited family and friends You celebrated and rejoiced I was very happy To be a source of happiness

The day I came into the world

The day I came into the world Was your last day of happiness

The day I came into the world Was your last day of happiness After the doctor told you

The day I came into the world Was your last day of happiness After the doctor told you That I had pneumonia

The day I came into the world Was your last day of happiness After the doctor told you That I had pneumonia And I that I was autistic

I watched as your happiness

I watched as your happiness Gradually transformed

I watched as your happiness Gradually transformed Into sadness and regret

I watched as you quarelled

I watched as you quarelled That I was a burden to you

I watched as you quarelled That I was a burden to you I watched as you stared at me hopelessly

I watched as you quarelled That I was a burden to you I watched as you stared at me hopelessly Not knowing what to do

I watched as you came to an agreement

I watched as you came to an agreement On an easy way out

I watched as you came to an agreement On an easy way out I watched as you told me that you loved me

I watched as you came to an agreement On an easy way out I watched as you told me that you loved me But had no other choice

I watched as you took that pillow

I watched as you took that pillow And maliciously moved towards me

I watched as you took that pillow And maliciously moved towards me I watched as you pressed the pillow on my face

I watched as you took that pillow And maliciously moved towards me I watched as you pressed the pillow on my face Until I was unable to breathe

And as the life seeped out of me

And as the life seeped out of me I couldn't help but wonder

And as the life seeped out of me I couldn't help but wonder Why you gave birth to me

And as the life seeped out of me I couldn't help but wonder Why you gave birth to me If you couldn't take care of me.
