***Don't forget about my GIVE AWAY! On May 21st, 7 days from now, I'll be drawing a name out of the box for someone to receive, FREE, a book of my poems AND a crochet/bead necklace that I handmade myself! See the "Connection Rules" posting on this blog for the details.***
Sometimes life, new life, starts with struggle, trying to get acceptance, and labor, but of course there is always...LOVE. This is true, whether you're talking about a new HUMAN baby on the way, or...in my case...a new baby CROCHETED ART CREATION! My poem today was written about my 17 year old niece's pregnancy. But I wanted to share MY new babies too. None of these have ever been seen online...until now. They ALSO came with some struggle, labor, etc. And I'm trying to get some acceptance for them! :-)) First...Let me share my orange and yellow baby! I love how the swirly button matched the color of the bead dangle.
A New Life
There's a new one on the way,
with a frightened, teenage mom,
making all her life's decisions,
void of playfulness and calm.
There's a little one now coming.
Sacrifice will be the key
to a happy, joyful life,
for this little He or She.
There's another life that's ending-
name is "Teenager" and "Child";
Now replaced with "Mom" and "Mother",
Sacrificed may be her smile-
for at least a little while.
