»Legacy for my unborn child«

by Anonymous, June 9, 2017

You will not see my name in history books,
Nor will a statue be erected in my image.

No road will be written in my name,
My home will not be an attraction for Tourists.

My contribution will go unrecognized,
And my existence will befriend my flesh.

I have endured hatred and disbelief,
To leave you a better life.
