Both Mine and Yours, life is like a picnic
But you can't eye life and humanity in a clinic
We're all given our rights, the choice is yours
Whether living in peace or in war, but how can death cure?
Consuming the joy is supreme, the greatest value
So now you think that you, can just take it away
And the value of life is left to decay
Giving birth to life is a great risk
But hat is life if you aren't going to take risk?
Yeah you might go for pro choice
But who' speaking for the cancelled babies with no voice
You've taken an other being's life
Because of your own problems and strife
Life enters death, tears are shed
A baby is cancelled, and it's born dead
It hasn't even took it's first inhale of breath
And now it's going to avail to death
If the right is yours, but is theirs?
But you kill a living thing in despair, look in the mirror
Can you see yourself clearer?
So the blood has been splattered
But the financial situation is all that matters
Splattered blood all over the sheets
Infliction and history, grief repeats
A woman gives a baby the gift of birth
On this rock in the middle of space called earth
Life is greatest, and people speculate what it's worth
Some say it's short and it's dearth
But one thing many can guarantee, it ain't always mirth
Is death grace or just worse?
A baby could be born in a bad situation
So the parents might give it no salvation
No light at the end of the tunnel or day
Who are we, predators giving no mercy to prey?
The world is the most beautiful place
Created by all genders, cultures, and race
Are we ourselves humans of civilization or monsters?
When our wisdom hasn't outgrown a toddler
Life turns into a web of contortion
Because we commit murder, rape, and abortion
A baby's life is signaled by the dead eyes
You can smell the victory of demise, and hear the dread cries
Whether you like go pro choice or to criminalize
Remember Death is life's greatest critic
You can find something call life in a clinic
But you can also find something called killing
Are you down or willing?
Some say it's empty or fulfilling?
Ask yourself these questions
Before the path turns into a digression
Continue forward, and precede to progression
You won't find life in a puddle of mud
But you'll find death in a pool of blood
