"Children"

A Poem By Keri // 5/20/2010

 

Poem 1:
I have no real children
I have many, many dolls
But dolls are not real children
They do not cry at all
 
I have no real children
I have stuffed animals galore
But stuffed animals are not real children
When their breakfast no one pours
 
I have no real children
I have a little sister dear
But she is not really my child
It’s me she doesn’t head
 
I have no real children
I have darling cat
But he is not a real child
He obeys too well for that
 
I might have real children
My children are my works
For they demand most of me
And love me in return
 
Poem 2
Every waking moment
A poem or tale cries to me
So I open my writer
And feed it, keep it growing
When I am feeding it,
It heads my direction well
But often it wants go on its own
Won’t in my direction dwell
 
Poem 3:
I will guard my children
Like a tigress with her cub
I will fight and protect them
Protection they’ll have enough
 
If anyone tries to take a child
A child that is mine
They will face the consequences
And I shall laugh about their whines
 
I admit that I neglect my children
I ignore them for a bit
But they are taken care of
While I am out of it
 
I love all my children
But they give me some white hairs
This is figuratively spoken
Else, at 17 I’d get stares
 
When I am not nurturing a child,
There is one in my mind
I have no real children
But my stories and poems are a kind

I must make a horrid mother

 I forgot all about my essays!! Now I know how my mother felt when she left my little sister at church (she forgot about her)!

Anyway, thank you darlings

Me too

And they're as annoying as children sometimes...I have to make bargains with them.
