I have forgotten how painful and difficult conceiving is.
Nurturing and protecting within our very womb
Creating and imagining possibilities still unseen
Believing and trusting that new life will be born and can begin.
It’s almost like a revolution that grows silently and slowly.
And you call it your own, only to realize you belong to it
You gather all the strength and power of her-stories past and today.
And labor with sweat and tears, to give birth to a new beginning – someday.
