Baby Out Of Wedlock


I get the looks and comments do come
I get the stares, you know the ones
And yes, some ask questions to me
I welcome them all; don’t let me be

Yes he’s my son, I had him late
I waited till I got a mate
Not a mate I shacked up with and called “my man”
But a man who love and value me
Enough to put a wedding ring on my hand

First came love
Then came marriage
Then a 42 year old
Pushing a baby carriage

I got the looks
And comments did come
But having a baby out of wedlock
No, I’m not the one

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
