God said he sent me here for a reason.
He told me that I could change the world with my voice.
I couldn’t wait to use these gifts.
I had to wait five more months.
God said that I would love the world,
There would be wonderful things to see.
He also told me that there were bad things,
But he would always be with me.
I can’t wait to enter the world.
I can hear the sound of a woman’s voice.
She seems so kind.
God said that was my mother.
My mom sounded very young when she spoke,
Much younger than God did.
I asked God why this was so,
He said that she was seventeen.
I heard my mom cry sometimes.
I didn’t understand why,
God said that my dad left my mom.
He said that she was scared.
I couldn’t wait to be with her,
I didn’t want my mom to be scared.
I wanted to take care of her,
Like she is taking care of me.
I love her already,
She has kept me so safe.
God said that she would always protect me,
But I want to protect her too.
Now my world was very dark,
God explained light.
He said that I would see it soon,
Four and a half months.
My mom cried more lately,
And it broke my heart.
I heard words I didn’t recognize,
“Too hard”, “cannot”, “end”.
God wouldn’t tell me what this meant,
He told me to be brave,
That I would see him soon.
I didn’t know God lived on earth too.
Today I could feel my mom shaking.
Her voice cracked when she spoke.
I heard a strange man’s voice,
She called him doctor.
My mom’s blood began to pump faster,
God said she was nervous.
He told me to be strong,
To trust him.
I felt something cold and hard,
It felt sharp, and hurt so much.
Suddenly I felt like I was being pulled away.
I heard my mom cry,
Then it was over.
The pain was gone,
I saw the light.
I asked God if this was earth.
He said, “No my child,
This is heaven.”
