My Child

“Frau mit totem Kind” by Käthe Kollwitz

My child, were you born perhaps to die?
Sweet child, was that the reason you cry?
I brought you in this world filled with grime;
Sound the trumpets of darkness sans rhyme;
Because of myself I brought you pain;
I gave you the flesh apt to be slain.
I curse the one who created me;
And curse the creator who formed thee.
