Left Alone In Ocean Of Catastophes

Whats this suddern feeling of
death i feel whats this pain
im experiencing from my
mothers stomach

mother! ! dont shoulder your
mistakes to me if i remember
correctly i didnt chose to be on your stomach but all i know

is that i want to touch the
surface of this earth for
the fist time
please dont take my breath away

father please come closer
for my own mother is giving birth to hate and
sadness into her own

mother! ! I cry
mother! ! I cry
father my mother wants
to kill me

my mother wants to kill me
before she even named me
mother! ! I cry
mother! ! I cry

my own mother wants to
kill me before she even
saw that im a boy or girl
mother i cry
mother i cry

mother wants to kill me
father please talk to her
for she is giving birth to
hate and pain to her own flesh

    Thought provoking! Really impressive the way you express your feelings! This is a well crafted and touching write that clearly shows your sensitivity and talent! 10+++ I can see in you a future master if you keep it up! Life is a two-ways street and we learn from experience whether it is joy or pain but the real success derives from assimilating this experience in a productive way! Thanks for sharing and keep it up! I really enjoyed your write! Regards from New York City (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
