Lament of a Newborn


Life bursts forth from primal scream
First gasp of air, first sight is seen
Wriggling, crying, where am I?
From warm and quiet, naked here I lie!

The journey here has taken months
From nothingness to one big bump!
I started off with lots of space
Then struggled as I grew with grace

I hope my bed is ready and warm
I move more freely now transformed
From little spec to full formed baby
Could this one be my room maybe?

I'm hungry now, don't you know?
I have to cry to  make milk flow
And now things aren't so nice and dry
My nappy's wet again, why oh why?
