I am Abiku



Opening eyes formerly closed,

I see hearts quite gladdened.

My mother puts me to her breast

But I will not let her rest.

For upon setting foot in a home,

Their emotions I take control.

With their tears and drops of sweat,

My antics they try to resist.

But renew this body I must do.

For I made one a promise to.

So today, I hear my parents wail,

In nine months I will see them smile.

My mother’s tears I do not hate.

I am afraid that’s my fate.

And the cycle will endure,

For I am called Abiku!
