Day one ..
I have just made a journey
Through dark tight tunnels
striving to reach the end
The end called LIFE
I enter the world crying
Was frightened along life’s way
Still attached to my living food bag
'Til click and cut I am free.
My mouth and nose are cleaned
of all the debris stored therein
Wrapped tightly in a white warm sheet
I meet this strange red faced woman
She is crying also, tears of happiness, of joy
waited many long years, for me her son
Can feel the love, she has inside as she
holds me tightly to her breast and sighs
Tears subside, I am calm
Time to sleep away my cares
I am at peace now, from Day 1
this is home, Mam and Tad are here
