Da Moment U Were Born...


Da moment U were born,
I was in a cell,
with my heart so torn.

1 of da guards
gave me da news,
having mixed emotions
but mostly, I'm just blue.

I'm just a child myself,
feeling so confused,
don't know what 2 say or what 2 do.

I'm sorry 4 not being there
when U took your 1st step,
or to clam U down, when U were upset.

Sorry,
I have never been a real father,
either because of my legal status or because your mother.

Don't judge them, I know its hard,
just wish we didn't have to be so far apart.

Da moment u were born,
was da happiest moment in my life,
Regardless of where I found myself
at that point and time.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
