Pre-natal Letter

by Bilal Berthony
AKA Brooklyn Poet

I tell you this now
prior to your birth
I promise you the world
plan to deliver the universe

I'll devote my life to raising you
in the image of the Father
I promise you that
my strapping son
or my darling daughter

Just know that your life will be judged
by the choices that you make
You don't have to be perfect
We all make mistakes

Treat your life like a blank canvass
create a work of art
choose your colors wisely
always paint from your heart

I'm here to help you
God chose me as your guide
to help you make the right choices
make sure you color within the lines

So when my life is over
my soul can rest in peace
For my art work is done
and in you... I've left
a masterpiece.
