My baby’s new womb
By: Dwit David Philip
I conceived and carried you for nine months,
I delivered you the day you are born,
I had sleepless night when you are in womb,
It was always good, when kicking and beating my pregnant womb
Today you are grown up struggling around for survival,
The world is your new womb with, heat, water, wind and society is the addition.
Sorry beta I thought
You are delivered for ever
Be stong quickly to deliver,
Before the time I have heavenly call.
