Prayer Before Birth

Rating: 4.0
I am not yet born; O hear me.
Let not the bloodsucking bat or the rat or the stoat or the
club-footed ghoul come near me.

I am not yet born, console me.
I fear that the human race may with tall walls wall me,
with strong drugs dope me, with wise lies lure me,
on black racks rack me, in blood-baths roll me.

I am not yet born; provide me
With water to dandle me, grass to grow for me, trees to talk

'My sympathies are Left, ' he wrote. 'But not in my heart or my guts.' That we can read in this quote of him. Uttering loudly that he is a communist, he would be sentenced, perhaps to death. Excellent poem but full of melancholy

Expressing in a straight way about the own thoughts and stream in society, would be very dangerous. He is a communist, but dared not to write nor utter about that theme.

His angst utttered in a poem full of metaphors. A true thought-provoking poem, especially about an unborn child
