pre-

Think on my whys
And when you do,
Think on the time
I rescued you.
Were you a child?
Were you a being
Without thought
Who has trouble
Seeing what’s
About you?
How you came to be
You know not,
Nor can you
Tell Me
What you were
In form
Before your spring
Into your
Mother’s womb.
How can you be
Thinking upon
Any other thing
But what I bring
From where
Plainly
You existed
Before being?
