Oh my unborn child
What right do I have to let you be born,
Into a world of miseries,
Into a life of uncertainities???
You never know what is in store for u
Neither ‘m I too sure of
I hope to be with you in every step u take
But u n me know that I can’t be with you for long.
You don’t even have a choice,
To be born or not be born is not
I take that very important decision for you
Whether you love it or not,
Live you have to with it.
I can’t guarantee anything
Neither can I make promises,
You may have imperfections u detest
You may hate urself for the way your are
You can’t chose your family
Neither can u chose the way u are
These are decisions I take.
So my unborn child
Do I really have the right
to throw u into a life designed by me.
All you have to do is just live
Cuz the call has been mine!!!!
I often wonder why people have kids? Before u raise your eyebrows, I would like to clarify that I absolutely adore kids. Though, I can be a lil biased and fall for the cute, chirpy kids, the truth is that I find almost all kids cute. I love their innocence and playfulness. I love baby-talking with them. And being the eldest grand child of the big family, I took it upon myself to look after all the kids. I was their unofficial caretaker. And I’m protective about strangers’ kids by default. I keep a vigilant eye on kids who run around in restaurants or malls and keep a protective hand over their head when they are going to bang it onto something sharp. That said, I’m not excited at the prospect of having my own kids. Always beats me. What is it that inspire people to have kids. I would really like to know.
- You believe in the cycle of life. Birth, childhood, growing up, marriage, having kids and death – u believe in this cycle and follow it unquestioningly. Nothing more, nothing less.
- U have an intense longing to father or mother a child. You love to cradle a baby and enjoy the process of bringing him/her up or watch him/her grow.
- Pressure from the family or society.
- Don’t really know. Just going with the flow.
- You are bored with
current life/partner even though u love them. U think u need something more to make it more meaningful. ur
- Any other reason.
- Hope that the kids will take care of you when you are old.
I may sound crazy, and most people I talked to regarding this dismissed myself as being crazy. But the truth is that they don’tw ant to discuss or worse still, they don’t sometimes know. I would love it if you share your views on this.
