The poem beautifully presents the thoughts of the poet through the mouth of the baby who is still unborn. The baby is well aware of the gravity of the situation across the world that he is just too scared to take birth. He simply knows that the world is too evil that he will not be able to sustain here, given its innocence.
This is a poem about how much I hate oblivion. A place where there is no consciousness, no awareness, a complete ignorance. A place where nobody knows who I am, as if, I do not exist at all.
