Thoughts from the Unborn Baby - Cute and Funny Poem for Mommy

To Be Unborn

How terribly strange to be unborn…

Say, eight months long—

The days are so long.

Not able to see,

Wanting to be free.


Attached to a cord,

Feeling real bored,

Enclosed in a sack

Like a little backpack.


Feeling too snug,

Giving the cord a tug.

Wanting real food—

Not this stuff in a tube.

April is National Poetry Month!

Sharing this funny poem for National Poetry Month! I hope you're enjoying this month of poetry. #29


Kicking Mommy’s tummy,

Thinking it’s funny—

Until she starts crying,

Then I feel like dying.


Wanting to cry,

But my tear ducts are dry.

Feeling close to my mother,

Even though I could smother.


Wondering, in fact,

If she’ll like me back.

Wanting to see

If she looks like me.


How terribly strange to be unborn....


Feeling anxious and scared

yet totally prepared

to leave comforts below

to a world I don't know.


I can't wait to see

the one that holds me....

Isn’t it about

Time I’m let out?

My poems are usually sad, heavy, or sentimental. I thought something fun and light would be nice and different. :-)

I just loved this pretty little poem. What a twist to look through the eyes of an unborn soul, in mama's sack like a knapsack on it's back, floating around and attached to this cord like a bungee waiting to drop through the canal and into the waiting hands of the delivery man/woman. LoL so cute, loved it. Rate UP and Awesome..

I'm glad you liked it, saddlerider. I didn't know how well it would go over, but I liked the sweetness and humor of it. I'm glad you thought it was cute. I like your images of "floating around and attched to this cord like a bungee waiting to drop through the canal and into the waiting hands of the delivery man/woman." You have such a way with words, whether in your poetry or in your comments to others. Thanks for the great comments and votes!

Victoria Lynn, this is awesome. If only one could peek inside the brain of an unborn child, maybe, it could be thinking just the way you put these thoughts.

Voted up and awesome.

What a remarkable poem. to get into an unborn mind, would be like God trying to define your state of mind to an angelical kind of feeling. But you did excellent my friend...Wonder if unborn babies feel what is coming ahead, on this harsh moments that await the day to meet mommy, who did care. Thanks Victoria for the feelings!

I've wondered too what unborn babies think as their little brains develop and they lie there in the dark.

Enjoyable poem
