Child Birth

Rating: 4.9

Child birth

She knew everything
About us; awake or deep asleep.

She knew of our beds
Behind walls, thick or thin.

She knew of jars there
As group, in single.

She knew of silo
Wheat, barley, all contents.

Even wives of her son
Once told me in secret:
"Your wife is pregnant."

I felt that I turned red
Then she talked with wisdom:
"She needs this…and do that…"

She knew my excess
In worries and access
Once again came advice
When saw me almost dead:
"Look around, see people…"

She said for barrier:
"They were born in same way! "

She wanted our success
In loving and caring
As needed, not excess:
"If you fall she is next…"

For darkness she was light
For our nights torch, candle.

But today the parents
Live on line with Google…
Right or wrong no feeling
Internet makes no sense.

The Internet can be wonderful or terrible, depending on how you use it. Many people do spend too much time online instead of having real lives. Very nice poem and congratulations on poem of the day!

You have so profoundly captured the essence of humanity vs. technology. Empathy vs. indifference. It moved me greatly. Beautiful poem that is very worthy of Poem Of The Day. Congratulations, Nassy. I think that you might like some of my poetry esp. Mother. I invite you to my writings.
