Born Again


He may be
Born again
I guess

He never
Had a father
All his life

So he may
Look forward
To being born
Again and having
A father in his next
Life

    An interesting poem. I'm wondering if the meaning is meant as to be born again as in a religious sense a and beingborn anew in Christ or if it's meant in the way of that ever elusive quest of wondering if there is such a thing as reincarnation and an afterlife. I llove this piece for the way it is left open to the reader's interpretation. (Report) Reply
