"All Children Are Beautiful"

His heart of white, deep shallow wells, yet beautiful
He smirks, a grin, an ego that won't let me in' -he's beautiful
Bastard of beauty, running ashes without a name
A face with no claim, a young man pound from shame 
What is his sin, he's beautiful!
I want to breathe from his ashes, swim through his veins
I want him to come into my light, like a good dame

I sing and tell a tale, a Bastard through the night
His eyes, I waged, I was young and poor, I was saved
Lying down, in the arms of my white knight
My hair he caressed, he came to my light
The furnace burned, the night was fast becoming trite
A lover, he did it well then went back to his wife
A moment so golden, the ages live, his son is born

Another Bastard brought into this world

    Hi Linda Have you ever thought about this, How do we live in a world where people think it is ok to label an innocent child a bastard when they have no comprehension into the world they are born and their parents the culprits absolved of all responsibility, mind blowing if you think about it. Cheers Chris

    G'day Linda... enjoyed the twist in your poem. I guess there are 'good bastards' and 'bad bastards' all over the world... regards, Lindsay.

    You is a mean beeyotch. As far as coming in your light - at least he brought the flash AND the bang. Some of us are all flash and no bang - moi. lol The best relationship I've ever had was an affair with a married woman. At least he didn't throw you over for porn and a jug of wine. He prolly remembers you fondly and fondlingly.

    You use "bastard" in a really nice way. I don't think I'll mind the next time someone calls me that ;-p. Awesome poem.

    WOW! what intensity, and bringing me to the unknown ending. I just walked through an affair, very romantically, and very true. I guess the bastard cycle doesn't end. This is one of my favorite poems, your fantastic...

    Wow, Linda. this is very good. I believe that God has a plan for each soul and if this is how one must come into the world then who are we to judge. Very descriptive and full of images to stroke the canvas of my mind. Your friend.... Robert.
