Be bold!

At some point

you must leave the womb!


He would lay under

an aquatic duvet,

meekly, legs folded.

It would feel safe,

like the womb,

warm and dreamy.


Reality bites like a

hungry wolf,

starved for weeks,

and you can’t go back!


Leaving across the

rainbow bridge,

you would walk

amongst the other children

in decaying bodies,

and it’s s hard to pretend.

Pressing your fingers tightly

against your closed eyelids

as to stop the pain

in your stomach,

which makes breath uneasy.
