Dead Before Life
by Julia Debski

Day in, day out,

Be good, be great, be the best
Don’t eat, don’t sleep,

Ideas flood by
Drowning the pen and paper
No sleep, it’s for the weak,

Click clack of keys
The children of others being born
Nothing of my own

It was washed away with
The tide
Laugh, cry
Hands shake,

Breath life into something that
Does not yet exist
A stillborn baby 
Presented to the world 4 months too early.
