    The Day I Was Born

    The day I was born,
    I will never forget it.
    (Although they all say that I have.)
    I looked around
    without making a sound,
    then I screamed that I wanted a bath.

    But the doctors just nodded,
    ignoring my pleas,
    like they didn't understand what I said.
    So I screamed even louder
    till they gave me some powder
    and tucked me away in my bed.

    The day I was born,
    I will always remember
    as clear as a crystal sea.
    For that was the day
    all my fears went away
    and I started the process of me.
