Poem: The Unexpected Life
You’re a fragile flower around those protective thorns
Beaming in the touch of the sun rays
Forming drops of crystals,
when the rain showers you in glee .
Vibrant energy is reflecting within you
The positive thoughts everyone adores
So much expectations around
However you’re still a soul,
need to be nurtured and be cared upon.
The heart of the family as what they say.
But can anyone dictate your fate?
Can you really know what’s on the way?
Suddenly you found a wrong love in your path
Your adrenaline holds you in lust
Not knowing the result of that clash
Life shifted to another scene
Your love is going to nowhere
Your family still in awe and shock
The princess they should care
Now having a new life to rise upon
A sob embedded in regrets
can be heard in the heavy breeze.
You need to give up lots of things
Those sparkling days in freedom,
now hiding in the gloomy mood of boredom.
Then little by little, a new life started to form
“I can sense the fear in your womb”
“Am I a curse in the cradle’s tomb?”
Several days have gone,
You still go on and learned to play your role
Everybody started to accept everything
Now ready to face the responsibilities
Excited to see the unborn life
That once a burden to you
Behind the emotions,
a promise you murmur:
“Sorry for being weak,
I’m going to love you forever my child.”
The new life inside you is now better and healthy
It seems to understand...
"You’re stronger than I thought
You let me be a part of you despite of everything
Now ready or not I will come out in a flash
Having that fear that I might end up in a trash
Great thing, there you are waiting
I could feel the warmth of your chest,
You’ve always been there for me since then.
Making my loud cry turn to giggles
I know you’re just pretending
to be older than your age
Lying just for my sake
How am I going to give the just words for you?
Words might under estimate the feelings I have
Maybe I can’t be the greatest child of them all
But this will be my innocent plea to myself
My genuine cry to God
May the loving instinct in me resides
‘Til I grow up and found my real life
To you, my young mother,
I love you…
Thank you very much
for the unconditional love."
Thank you child for the happiness
My fate is not bad after all
I will always care for you
Forgive me for being not perfect.
I will keep my promise forever
I will love you till the last breath of my life.
