‘Reading back’

Reading back

To see all the love my mother recieved

As she was pregnant with me

June 4th 2010 I was attended

When her pregnancy finally ended

I feel a surge of relief 

That my mother had so many people with belief

Belief that I came out well

Although it was quite like hell


Sadness came to me as I realise

That I almost didnt make it out alive

Goodness! I must've scared her

As I didnt come out in a whirr

Doctors repeating I wouldn't make it

Knowing my mother wouldn't take it

Here I am, alive now

Writing poetry on write out loud

Just like my mother would have done now
