One More Lullaby

Wolves asleep

Amidst the tress

Bats all a- swaying

in the breeze...

Teresa sang a lullaby while caressing her baby's head and softly swaying to put her to sleep.


Teresa, the 25-year-old office manager. She is a stunning woman who could draw any man's attention to her every time she goes by. She arrived home at 12 a.m. after a long and exhausting day at work. As soon as she walked into the house, she went straight to her room and jumped into the warm, fuzzy bed. She then drifted deeper into her slumber, oblivious to the fact that she had not changed her clothes. She had an odd dream about a baby while sleeping. It was a nightmare that she had every time she went to sleep. It keeps repeating itself till it turns into her worse nightmare.

She felt a cool breeze coming through the window while she slept. It was palpable on her skin. Ignored the first shiver, but only until she felt something grasp her face. She was startled awake when she felt a little hand on her face. She then proceeded to the restroom and glanced at herself in the mirror, assuring herself that it was simply due to her exhausted and overworked state. She then realized she was still dressed in her office clothes. Then went back to her room after taking a quick shower.

When she realized the time, it was 3 a.m. After a shower, everything looked to be back to normal. She was about to close her eyes when she heard a baby's faint scream. As she proceeded to fall asleep, she didn't even bother to glance at it; the more she ignored it, the more the baby sobbed. "Please let me take a break," she says solemnly, without even looking behind her back.

The baby's cries persisted. She cautiously turned around and saw a beautiful little baby weeping and yearning for a mother's love. A tear started streaming down her face all of a sudden. "I'm very sorry," she said repeatedly as she gingerly picked up the baby. "I'm so sorry for what mama did to you. I was dumb back then and didn't know what to do."

"I'll just sing you one more lullaby, and you're now free to go."


Two years ago, Teresa was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend, and sadly, later on, her boyfriend left her all alone. She could not bear the sadness when her boyfriend left her. She felt devastated. The baby was five months old inside her womb when she decided to abort it. She feels like her image will be destroyed if she has a baby. None of her office mates know that she has a baby in her tummy because she always wraps it up and wears a big heavy sweater. She's afraid that her promotion as a manager will be turned down if her boss finds out that she's pregnant.

That is why her baby hunts her every night in her sleep.


This brief story isn't that frightening. In fact, it's a heartbreaking story about an unborn baby yearning for the affection of its mother. A baby that has never seen the beauty of the world we live in and has never been able to touch their mother's face. A child who was neglected by society and was terminated before ever seeing the outside world.

This happens to a lot of people nowadays. But we couldn't blame or judge them easily for doing that thing, because we don't know what they've been through.

It's sad when things like this happen. It could have been avoided but who are we to judge? We don't think the same way and we all have reasons why we do what we do.

Poor baby! I hope she gets the peace or whatever it is that she is yearning for. I hope too that she would be able to forgive her mom and let her move on in life.

I know you said we shouldn't judge, but I'm still going to do it 😆; abortion is bad. She's got the consequences of her action and at the end she decided to end the life of an innocent baby

lol, I, myself is also against legalizing abortion knowing that it is a sin. But still, no matter what the situation is, we still couldn't just judge them especially those rape victims

Yeah I guess you're right, when it comes to rape victims it's not actually their fault

This event happens daily in the world, about baby being aborted even before turning 5 months, most ladies do it because they don't want the society to look at them differently

Exactly. This happens everyday and some other countries are already normalizing abortion. But we can't just judge them easily because we don't know what they've been through maybe some are rape victims 😞

This is so sad and heartbreaking. I felt pity to the baby. Abortion is a sin. Even there are a lot of reasons, abortion is a biggest mistake.

It must be avoided. The baby don't have a fault but in the end they're the one who receive the pains.🥺

But people mostly in today's generation are already normalizing abortion even in some foreign countries. Which is so sad to think, but we couldn't just blame them 😞
