Vernix towel

by thirdeyerhein

I began life covered by a vernix towel

Eyes crack open and emblazoned all around

The rich display of reality chucks up a howl

I came forth and was lifted before I drowned

Shock hits home and my first vibration is a growl

Their joy can be picked up on by the sound

The cord is cut no harm no foul

My mother takes me in and I am free from the mound

Her smile is full of effulgence and blasts away her previous scowl

The pain of birth I will never know and for that she deserves to be crowned

To always be there and to lookout for me just like an owl

I shall cherish you now and long after I bid farewell at your burial ground
