Why Me

It is my right to know,
Why me.

Its not a favour but a right,
So why me mumy.

You gave birth to me,
You made plans for it or not,
But i have the right to know my family.

You are happy today mom,
Only becouse you know who you are,
But have ever thought of me mumy,
Please do not be selfish.

Yes you had a clsh with him,
But not him and me mom,
So why do you still hide his face to me,
Why did you harden your heat to me mom,
Especially now, please tell me.

My soul called brothers and or sisters,
They all know their origine,
They can all point to their father,
They can freely focus becouse they have backup,
Backup from the real father,
But why me.

I still want to know - why me.
If you di not choos this life for me,
If you accept that thats a mistake,
If really feel it down from your heat mumy,
Why did you keep quite upto now,
Thats why i ask, WHY ME.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
