No One Else on Earth

Regina Puckett


I fell down to earth

An agonizing, bloody birth

I came screaming and livid

Into a world so real and vivid

Just another mouth to feed

Just another thing they didn’t need

But they cherished me in spite of it all

They allowed me to kick, scream and brawl

Shaking their heads at my stubbornness

While never allowing me to be rudderless

They let me fall but was there to help me stand

Smiling at my victories and crying over each failed plan

No one else on earth has ever understood me so thoroughly

Accepted my faults, my heart or my soul so wholly
