Don’t Believe In Me…Just Believe Me

I was born the twelfth of December
That’s what they told me —
I don’t remember
I hope no one ever says
It never really happened
Lest my children fade with me
Love forgotten
Or worse….
A dream
One slowly awakens from
Disappearing from memory
Like dew on the grass
Felt in the morning
Gone by noon
Don’t erase me
Now or when I die
I am not a lie


We cannot deny, erase or re-invent history.

Inspired to write a Birthday poem by a fellow writer. Check him out.

    Beautiful poetry! You approached the topic in a much more poignant way than that ridiculous Robbie Yates fellow! 😂


  3. We all want to do something different when we grow up, I am looking for my humor. I just haven’t found it yet, except for a glimpse now and again. Glad you liked it.
