A Baby Boy...

Name; Elijah Aeon
Born in October 30, 2013
Weight: 9 pounds
Cesarean Operation
Place; Caloocan City, Philippines

Of Names...

Of Names
(This is a poem dedicated for my son Elijah Aeon)

Name names what do they have to mean?
will it add to one's character
or just a vain of lesser sin?
Has it value to discover?
Yes my child all names have meaning.
you'll ask, like we did before you
the origin, good and fitting
to your person like nice new shoe.
Name separates to other kind
beyond recognition to us
but identity we've assigned
to your future not to our past.
So speak gently now with your name
get no trouble and give honor
to represent you fame
not abysmal angst to shame for.

Our First Born

Our First Born

Our first born, past 10 months after our wedding
a chosen name fit to exalt HIS own name
and indicate "oneness" from Gaelic meaning
you are a blessing we will now about to claim
this day onward we're humbled by its flame.

We are overwhelmed the beauty of this beginning
driven expectations and hidden fear
of the odds you hurdled to be a healthy being
but surely you uplift our humanity and cheer
remembering our parental duty to bare.

To raise you with love top the list
and how to return the love to others around you
Understand why balance have to exist
in a world of organized chaos we knew
may it be different not entirely new.

As family we will provide security
to comfort you not by earthly standard
but provides your own spiritual entity .
Wisdom in art and justice to pay it forward
with thirsts to science and equality to all men.

My son Love your own people, and proud origin
protect your name and care for your surroundings
the ecology of your self a quest you need to begin
at home, community and creatures converging
to define you from your own upbringing.

We will not be always near you
but remember these words where ever you will be
"The world gave way and waited for you,
but it would not stop now awaiting thee
for your own responsibility."

Rite Of Passage

(Our baby boy turn 1 year old)

Humbling himself to a stranger and being ridiculed by so many stimulus;
loud, colorful, amusing, attention-grabbing worldly means
too familiar like a served honey to a little bear
at times painstakingly annoying,
on the floor are fallen keratins
who made their last stand
after many regal months
serving as a crown
to this Prince's
own medulla,
cortex and
a sovereign
site and resplendent
end for new beginning
Finally the passage was over
after minutes of miniscule eternity
bowing down albeit it is surrendering
his fate to the person in charge of this ritual
- his first barber

very good naming I have known names associated with incidence ... like when inception took place... or unexpected delivery.. when copulation took place under a tree ...
some like me were born on the beach ..
out of a doctors reach ..
so the name has to be a playful one... it must make you smile..
or me else all others will tease ...
some names you would like are these
....born within your ten months of marriage only ...
hello are you asleep or still listening ?
some names then are like
quickie darling
treeally love
beachme kiss
airyfairy (first delivery on flight xz03)
(born in a car when tyre got flat )
well just continue and name your kid ..
don't let the name embarrass him/her..
like horseykick....
won't do ..
it would indicate some thing embarrassing about you two.... you Get my point?
... poet and publisher
..have you named your child no/..
I will help you come if you wish to more names know

You know, I as a mum wouldn't be happy of my birth and labour put on public display. Although, I have done it subtly but will never again put my baby on public display. Had enough of a hassle with people trying to kidnap and what not because of the cuteness.
Be careful, wish your REAL child well but protect your offspring.

They wanted to buy my child for 500k INR for the childless gay brother and that was the husband trying to pay me off because the gay brother controlled him using money as the husband is mentally unstable.
