Baby of Mine





Yomalli Contreras-Ortiz














I was born to be a mother
That is all I ever heard
But children were not in me
I was not that fortunate
One day I was walking through a forest
When I saw some ruins
I was planning to walk by
Then I heard a little cry
My heart told me to go and see
My soul told me my time had come
I jumped through all the rubble
And there I saw him
A little baby boy
He looked at me with violet eyes
I felt like I was being searched
I rushed to pick him up
And continued my way home
Now I have my little baby
Tears jump to my eyes
I finally have, a baby of mine
