birth

This weeks prompt on Pen Me A Poem is Birth

.

His birth was long
his life but a brief moment in time
The act of a cruel God
or was it meant to be?

Her tears of pain
became tears of utter despair
Did her God forsake her
or was it meant to be?

'

let me read it to you

  2. A very painful poem but which is very well crafted. It really hit the emotional level of my mind.

    The questioning at the end of each small verse is a great added touch.
