    I see it! I see it! I see the light!
    I’m coming momma!
    Pushhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Puuuuuuuuuush! Push for me!
    Ahhhhhhhhh! I’m free.
    Whew! It’s cold out here.
    Whaaaaaaaaa! Whaaaaaaaaaa! Whaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Whaaaaaaaa! Wait I can’t breathe!
    Cut the cord! Cut the cord! Whaaaa! Cut the cord!
    Cut the cord! (See my hurt, I’m showing it because I can’t speak)
    Cut the cord! (Pick me up!)
    Cut the cord! (Hold me until the hurt goes away)
    Cut the cord! (You’re scared and I am too)
    Cut the cord (Don’t do to me what your momma did to you)
    Cut the cord (Because I’m your blessing sent from above)
    Cut the cord! (Take me now and show me love)
    Don’t leave me here defenseless, drowning in my own blood.

    Whaaaaaaaa! If you don’t pick me up someone else will;
    Whaaaaaaaa! The things this world can do to a baby, should give you chills.
    Cut the cord! (Because you can)
    Cut the cord! (You have to teach me that who I am, is not determined by any woman or man).
    Whaaaaaaaa! Cut the cord, momma, please! (I am the one you prayed for down on your knees).

    I am crying for the babies still inside,
    I am crying for the babies who were thrown away, cast aside and died.
    I am crying for the babies who never saw life,
    I am crying for the babies living in strife,
    I am crying for the mothers who never stepped aboard,
    I am crying… because they never cut the cord.

    ...don't mean to sound cliche
    but...

    "This here" was deep...
    but compelling beyond words
    hard hitting, heart stopping...
    emotion plunging writing

    You created a sense of urgency
    even a slight sense of terror
    that the cord may not be cut
    when a life depended on it...

    Love the originality!
    Great read poet...

    This piece had me as a reader on the edge of my seat. The writer has a sense of fear that is echoed through out this piece. Good stuff here.
    Thanx for sharing...

    Cut the cord momma,
    I'm your future King or Queen

    Cut the cord momma,
    I'm a joy to be seen

    Cut the cord momma,
    before I turn black and blue

    cause I want to say, how much
    ...I really "love you"

    this was an awesome piece poet, thanks for sharing
