My Unborn Child - Poem by tanerea lee

My Unborn child you I longed for, being your mother is what I adore.My Unborn Child god sent you just for me, when I found out you were a girl, It brightened up my whole world. My Unborn Child I will love you unconditionally, For that's my job and I will love doing it with ease. My Unborn Child god sent you to me, Here for you as your mother and your friend I will always be. My Unborn Child I will love you until god calls me home, but until then in my arms, and in my heart you are and always will belong. My Unborn Child I am your mother and you are child, You make my life worth wild. My Unborn Child you made my life worth living, For god sent you into my wound for you to grow, god is so giving.

    A poem is, so to speak, a word picture. A poem does not need a line structure, rhythm or rhythm, but they help. This poem is written in the form of prose, a sort of poetic prose, and I do not think it works. I think God rates a capital G if the Child does... and surely it was a matter of God sending the child to the womb and not the wound! And of course it is 'worth while' and not 'worth wild'. Typos are so easy to make, and errors in spelling line up behind one's fingers... but you have to get into the habit at putting your amazing world shattering poem (we all think that) to one side for a week and read it like a reader rather than the besotted author. Keep writing, but try a different form. (and go back and edit this one) (Report) Reply
