I’m drifting, my eyes were closing
Death stared into my eyes but fear has now fled me
My surrogate mother held me
She pushed me,
And made it natural to dream.
That dream bids me!
Your surrogacy has changed the world
At least it changed mine
God really has spare parents on earth
Real ones like you,
You have become biological!
How did you see it?
How did you know my dream was missing?
How did you know I was out in the cold?
Normal life seeming like precious gold!
Just how O Mother!
Have you realised what you have done at all?
An armed robber yanked and tamed forefront,
A woman of possible loosed virtue denied induction,
A future illiterate refused introduction,
I will say more…
A lone forename, surnamed
A sun tarnish soul sheltered
My hunger vanquished
With a few more like you
A few more to help you
Many children will pick up the pen
And write their own poem.
