The Day I Was Born: A Journey Begins........ - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

As I come into the world,
step by step my journey begins
Everything looks so big,
so large, so superior
Look, there is a big person;
just help me to make it over there to their lap
Please, Please, just pick me up and hold me
I am safe, I am comfortable, I am secure..............................
They have put me down again,
this time at a strange place.
I look around and see a lot of small people
Wait, why are you leaving me here?
I am confused, I begin to cry
I am soon comforted by other kids
Time passes by throughout this journey,
I begin to achieve great things
My safe, comfort and secure lap has passed away.
I sure miss that lap, she was my best friend, my mother
I am just a big kid now, learning how corrupt things are?
I turn everything over to my higher spirit
I am safe, I am comfortable, I am secure
I am still full of questions that may never be answered
I guess it's a part of this interesting journey.
I have asked myself, is it me, or is it you.
