Naked And Blind - Poem by Randy McClave

Into this world we are born both naked and blind
Being rich or poor isn't in our thoughts or on our mind,
We can't judge or be judged by what we see or by what we wear
And the clothing or by the skin of others we don’t even care.
All children are equal when they enter onto this planet
Though that’s not written into the dirt or upon any slab of granite,
Children are born innocent and vulnerable for all the world to see
Then from watching and listening they become someone like you or me.
For a very short time the child will start to watch and to listen
Then they all change when with their name they will be christen,
The child and mother’s heartbeat will always beat the same
They beat in unison and for a moment they share the same thoughts and brain.
We are born naked and blind without prejudice and not being judgmental
Into this world when we arrive we enter it both fragile and gentle,
Then the child’s independence from their mother is their first reward
When the doctor severs the child’s umbilical cord.

    Verily, a child is born innocent but the environment pollutes him gradually as he grows
    Loved reading it
