Why do we do this to each other?
Why must we kill our own kind?
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
