"The father sought to split and call it even / When the sallow sick unwanted baby came / The mother fought to fit and call it Steven"


Was Me

 

The father sought to split and call it even

When the sallow sick unwanted baby came

The mother fought to fit and call it Steven

And both of them thought it would die just the same

Yet it did not to everyone's surprise

But grew a fragile child with big brown eyes

In spite of them and Steven was his name

 

The father's diamond eyes ice-blue and cold

Look from the outside into where he is

The brown-eyed mother never got to be old

But lived through her child and her eyes are his

Eyes of the mother reflected in the son

Who never really has been loved by anyone

Except for her the way they were was beautiful to see

 

As for the rest he did his best was dutiful: was me

A great self evaluation and history trip back in time to the Curtis creation of poetry incarnate. Good write as always Steve.
