The cousin I gave birth to

Three moons earlier
You came to stay here
Unwanted, uncalled for, uninvited
They said I could trust you
Even when I knew you only wanted give me your thrust
And has my life been destroyed?

When garbage comes in garbage goes out
This garbage on the other hand broke the rules
And came to change the course of my life
Has my life been destroyed you say?

Thrusts of dilemma
Inexplicable feelings
A damning realisation
Now they all blamed me
But has my life been destroyed?

My eyes are heavy
My shoulders weigh me
Everyday i wish I don’t see the sun

Has my life been destroyed?
I can’t tell.
For how do I explain
And what do say
When all the passersby ask of
The cousin i gave birth to
