Parents

Picture that, i would never imagine being in these
neck of the woods
I was a jewel in a certain female's womb
I had the luck and grace of a classical
motherhood
The gift of life, I never presume

She was devout, lavished me with her unwavering love
Even I could not select the genes that make me who I am
Simplistic and innocent as that dove
He was a leader and peaceful, the origin
of his name

The joys that await
The hope they have for their son, reborn
