No one is sure if they'll make it out of the womb,

Most of the time it's straight to the tomb.

Lucky you, if you made it out with a cry,

Most of us don't make it, we just die.

 

The cry was against what was coming,

All the fighting and bombing.

You hope your parents are wise and take good care,

Protecting you from now on and everywhere.

 

Pushing myself out was a very hard thing to do,

But I manage to get myself through.

Then the cruelty came, a hand slap,

Followed by a rough towel wrap.
