Susan Alldred Lugton
They came together in love,
They did not know,
that a baby might grow
from that intimate night
where passions fuelled without a fight.
Duality emerged so desperate,
two histories separate.
A child had began to form,
so different from the norm.
From humans, two of a kind,
with shared, brilliant mind.
Their bodies created something,
a person not a nothing.
Ten tiny toes and feet,
struggling to compete,
in that wilderness of places,
called earth, full of empty spaces.
Perhaps they should not have done it,
their child may not have wanted it.
If only they had known
what they both had sown,
for their need to be in the future
for their need to create culture.
selfishly they leaned.
