My Day Of Birth

it transcends to my thoughts
yet another day of mine
the day of my born day
as i age more today
a day, so memorable
adorable and honourable

i do feel older than yesterday
and stronger than the other day
waving through walks like many
that do so on their earth day
in whatever way they may
and so do i, today

i am the man that is
a man of swollen faces
of growth by the cages
like the many other pages
of the words

within my thoughts
and the journey within the faults
of learning
and earning
the color of my own dream
as i live, age, die and gone

i said to mine,
blessed day of birth
wednesday, the twenty seventh
nineteen eighty-fifth
a son was born; the sixth
on this day of the month

without this day
there is no say,
and the mother of mine
shall forever stay (in my heart)
the only source of my life
with love, at heart
