You arrived, screaming,

to fluorescent light shock;

mother’s body surrendered,

no more womb block.

 

Had red cherub cheeks,

copper startling hair;

infant beauty in sleep then,

now adorn you with care.

 

Since a toddler, righteous anger

against injustice, abuse-

sword precisely slices motives

can see others’ ruse.

 

Convictions tethered fast,

to both heaven, and earth,

love the finer things,

with wit and with mirth.
