What Life is this?
By: Dezire'e Taylor spud@ihug.co.nz

Working away, chipping at the shell,
a new life bursts forward.
A beautiful, yellow, soft little life.
A miracle of the creator,
has given us the privilege of his being.
Innocence has no place here.

Alone, yet amongst the crowd,
of more than a thousand
souls in the same small space.
Surrounded by like of birth.
A false sense of security

Long days and short nights.
Clamouring over the dead,
feed and water a plenty.
A month or two pass.

Space is scarce.
Companions leave this prison,
Awaiting the day of escape.

Growing well,
A good weight is he,

Ready now, the end is here.
