A Baby Needs Both
My aunt wants to have a baby
by Hebert Logerie
Without a father
My uncle wants to have a baby
Without a mother.
A baby is a human being
Not a car, not a machine
A baby has feelings and emotions
One day, that baby will go into actions.
A baby needs both a mother and a father
For emotional support and good upbringing
A baby needs love and a grant for a better future
Love ourselves by taking care of our offspring.
My neighbor wants to have a baby
Without a mother or a father
This is not funny, this a sad reality
Thank God, I've never seen a perfect doctor.
