A Baby’s Plea by guest blogger Tom M.

Photo0348You tell me that I’m precious, but yet you disagree, when mommy dares in public, to give her breast to me.

You tell my mom to cover as I attempt to feed, a selfish proposition, discomfort guaranteed!

You point her to the toilets, say do your feeding there, a germ infested bathroom, so nice of you to care!

To you I must be worthless, if that’s the thing to do, if that’s your best suggestion, why don’t you try it too!

You treat me like an outcast, I must be less than dirt, when mommy gets rejected, it’s really me you hurt!

You’d rather see me hungry, you’d rather see me hide, to cater to your rudeness, your ignorance and pride!

I might be just a baby, but I’m a person too, I want the same compassion, you’d want bestowed to you!

You want us to respect you, try showing us the same, my eating should be normal, not covered up in shame!

My mommy is my hero, my constant source for food, you really should respect her and change your attitude!

Don’t ask her to neglect me to satisfy your rule, if I am made to suffer, that sort of makes you cruel!

She isn’t trying to hurt you, by taking care of me, so do us both a favor and kindly let us be!

I’m glad my mommy loves me, like all good mommies do, I’m glad she doesn’t listen to selfish jerks like you!
