Newborn

by Ana Silva

Life is like a newborn
Barely rising to the world
Like a baby
Taking time to grow
Baby’s first step
Is the hardest
Trying to get up
Like trying to quit drugs
Before we mess up
We can’t see the good things in life
A newborn baby is blind
Having a comedown
Like baby brain
We don’t know much
We do know pain
