My Birth Day


When the cyclone hit my house
I had been floating asleep
Inside my mother’s womb
Until I as rudely awakened
By the raging storm and
My mother laboured to bring me
Forth into an uneasy world
Two months prematurely
Luckily, My father, a doctor,
Tended to her needs and
Despite the angry Earth tearing
Our world apart delivered me safely

The violent winds tore the roof apart
Sweeping it way for miles around
Decapitated the tall coconut palms
And the heavily laden mango trees
That once lined the driveway to our house
Its fruit tumbled onto our roof
Like large hail stones
Our speedboat it lifted and flung downhill
Narrowly missing our neighbours car
Our cat shed her fur in fright
And it was in this quagmire night
That I made my entrance into the world!
