Birth

Dedicated to my 3 beautiful kids!

Birth

I waited so long to see you
and imagined your beautiful
face a million times plus one

I went through numerous lists
to find out what to call you
when the waiting’s finally done

I thought of a thousand things
that could go wrong
and keep us apart forever

I dreamnt a hundred dreams
where we danced
and sung lullabyes ever after

I labored to bring you into this world
so I could hold you dear

You gave me strength to push on
and persevere

Then we met
and the universe cheered…

“Stuck”

Day 14 of 2012 November PAD challenge.

Stuck

I’ve been here for an eternity
Practically since I was born
I sleep and I wake here
Every night and morn

These white bars surround me
Even in my dreams
I think I’ll be here forever
At least, that’s how it seems

Although it’s quite comfortable too
I sometimes feel lonely here
Because everyone always leaves me
When I’m inside, they all disappear

I cry and laugh
I squeal and wail
I babble on and on
All to no avail

I am stuck here in this crib
Too little to climb out
I just can’t liberate myself
Growing up is the only way out!
