The Unexpected Surprise poem
I was born premature
I was at death’s door; doctors wanted to turn my life support machine off.
But my dad and mum fought to keep my life support machine on.
I fought with every breath and grew stronger each day
My family members prayed to god, who listened to their prayers
I survived and I am so alive
Which surprised the doctors
Being born prematurely has affected my legs.
I could start feeling sorry for myself, but as I said to myself, “What is the point of doing that?”
I have my brain and hands that still work
I have achieved a lot of things in my life
I still have other things I want to achieve
Nothing is going to stop me from achieving
I have a strong belief and confidence in my ability
I have felt my poetry giving me strength and enabling me to put any bad times in my life behind me
I think my poetry has given me a voice and I struggle to convey what I am sometimes failing to say through speaking
Lockdown has allowed me to concentrate on my own poetry
I like to write poetry throughout the day,
I am not letting being born premature obstruct my life
I am determined to live my life to the full
