I Have Seen It

I Have Seen It

A Poem by Jessica
"

Kind of just an idea of abandonment and how its kind of like a cycle in people who've only ever felt it. It kind of also deals with teen pregnancy but it can also be a bit of a metaphor for families.

"

The soft beating of a little heart

I have touched

The soft skin as tiny fingers try to grasp my face

Those tiny hands exploring

Curious about the world and who they may become in it

I have heard it

The cries of a child being abandoned

For that child's screams speak from my own lips

Not just high pitched yells, but another language all its own

Saying "Please don't leave me"

I was that child, I am that child

I hear those screams again, but this time not from my own mouth

As I shut the door on another innocent child lost to this world

I'm just like her who left me

Another one not yet ready for motherhood

We're all still crying "Save me"

And the cycle starts again

What do you think?
I'm not sure if the first couple of lines flow well enough or the last line either.

Its poetry, it doesnt matter if it all flows together, what matters is if u let ur feelings out & really feel good about ur writing. As long as ur readers feel the emotion you felt as you were writting it doesnt matter if it flows together or if the begining doesnt really match the end. When I write I write the begining line for my poem & let my heart take me from there. I love this poem & keep up the good work !
