baby
Emily Ginsberg


are you GOD’s creation

or the final product of my mind’s PERFECTION?

shall i thank LOVE for your entrance to this world

or scientists with all their medical advances?

do you care that your FUTURE is unknown

or should i have picked that out, too?

your LIFE, your every happiness, lies at my fingertips

with the signing of this paperwork—

so, why do i feel GUILTY when i sign you over to FATE, instead?
