BASTARD

"All Children Are Beautiful"

His heart of white deep, shallow wells, yet beautiful
He smirks a grin, with 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 pounding 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 inside 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 in 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

    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.

    Hi Linda, another great poem from you I read here. I have two so called Barstards in my family from both my son and my daughter, as well as five other grandchildren and I love them all the same. I don't think marriage is worth much these days anyway. I enjoyed your poem, my friend....Peter

    I am spellbound. This is poem is not the one to be judged technically. The pain, oozing out of it, is breathtaking. A child is a child. A beautiful one.

    Wow it is a lovely poem. so nearly a sonnet too.. my poem on a similar subject is hard and violent compared with the tenderness and acceptance that you show in this poem. Well done

    I like this nicely done. I thought I read it before, though I don't see a comment below. Have you ever seen movie called " Bastard out of Carolina ? Happy Easter to you and yours Linda :)

    The life we live is to be beautiful. Calling a child a bastard is quite ugly. However, Linda, you have wrote a beautiful poem that states my child is loved. Therefore, if he is call a bastard he will define that love. Beautiful poem... Oh, by the way thanks for your positive remarks on my poem Why I Am ME? Verlena :0))s

    Bastard or not it is better to have one loving parent. I love how you paint two beautiful pictures Linda. I needed to read some good poetry this morning and you didn't disappoint.....Hugs Tim
