A Letter From The Unborn - Poem by bakuli bhakali

(I still don’t know if I may use this word 'dear'? !
As I’m no more dear to you
Nor will I ever be,
Until you let me!
Ok, that doesn’t matter
You at least loved me
Until you knew
I’ll be me
You’re my father
Or you’ll be
If you let me)
Father and...
I should write to you too!
You’re the better half of my father
Although, for namesake!
I should write to you too
Even though I knew
There is least you can do,
To save me!
It’s just; you’re lamb with the limbs
And I’m without one
I'm just an inception
And will be another
If you don’t learn to live now
So, mother
I must write to you too)
My dear parents!
I won’t cry or beg to save me
But please save your tomorrow!
Neither you nor do I know
Tomorrow will be a different day
Whether the sun will shine by the bay
Or it’ll rain like today
But today can be a day
Like every day in the past
Before you knew
I even exist
You just need to believe
If the sun shines to give light
It rains to give life.
and a life isn't possible without the sun
and the sun will be lonely without a life
My dear parents
Trust me
We’ll enjoy today, tomorrow
Every coming morrow
No matter how tomorrow comes!

    Fantastic. The emotional appeal (right from the word 'dear') from an unborn child to his father and mother who conceived him. The words draw our attention about social evils prevailing all around. Thanks. I would like to quote from his address to his mother:
    There is least you can do,
    To save me!
    It’s just; you’re lamb with the limbs

    A n excellent flight of imagery displayed in the form of a letter from an unborn child professing a bright and meaningful tomorrow with girl child after it's birth. Reiteration of birth of girl child is commendable. Enjoyed the thought provoking poem. Thanks for sharing.10 + points. (Report) Reply
