Born To Live - Poem by Nelson Torres

You were about this small when you were born,
Your eyes as big as the world.
Beatings and batters made you worn
But your parents must've cried when they met you girl.
They looked into your eyes and saw nothing but life,
Not realizing they were bringing you into a world as cold as ice.
They dreamed to guide you through your endless troubles,
For 16 years they watched as your world turned to rubble.
Lies and lies flew right past your face
Yet they still struggled to drag you somewhere safe.
They pushed their effort
And promised never to abort.
Because you were more then everything
Especially when you smiled when you dreamed.
You came straight out of love,
Crashed into your body from above,
Now you're nothing but a mind
But refuse to believe that you're one of a kind?
Can't you remember your mother crying by your bed?
Convinced you were the sent from heaven while kissing your forehead.
She just wanted to give you the most
Why is that past recognized as a ghost?
Live your life how you were born,
Your smiles will live on,
Because your happiness ain't gone.
Just keep looking with your heart lit
And those beautiful eyes that you were born with.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

So I'm re-posting my poems again. I wrote this poem for a friend who wanted to commit suicide, like I said before this doesn't only apply to her, I want the reader to realize that everyone is beautiful in their own way, no matter how tough things are.
