I am Abiku

Opening eyes formerly closed

I see hearts quite gladdened

My mother puts me to her breast

But I will not let her rest


For upon setting foot in a home

Their emotions I take control

With their tears and drops of sweat

My antics they try to resist


But renew this body I must do

For I made one a promise to

So today I hear my parents wail

In nine months I will see them smile


My mother’s tears I do not hate

I am afraid that’s my fate

And the cycle will endure

For I am called Abiku
