    I struggled to have a deep talk with myself...
    There was no way of knowing...
    It was inevitable...
    The clouds were full...too full;
    and in a moment, there would be a cloudburst...

    How come I didn't learn...
    Why didn't I pay attention to the
    warning signs?
    How could I let it get to this point...
    Birthing pains...
    Oh Lord! I'm pregnant!
    Something on the inside....
    Something moving and tossing inside...

    There was a brief moment of peace...
    But like a person awaking from a nightmare,
    the feelings hit with an intensity...
    I lost my footing....
    fell head-long into a chasm of
    seducing feelings, and crystallized impressions that
    caressed the inner trappings of my soul...
    My 'soul-istic' water broke...
    God! I'm going into labor...
    Someone call the Doctor quick!

    Does he need to get to a hospital?
    Do you think he needs to be at a hospital?
    Does he need this?
    Does he require that?
    Does he...
    Does he...
    Oh! My bad, it seems I don't need a doctor.
    A still voice...
    whispers and sweet echoes...
    Invasion of my psyche and barging in on my reflection...
    Let the birth happen...
    This thing has to come through my birth canal...
    Hush...Hush...Hush now, chylde...
    See, sometimes there will be pain while you give birth.
    Sometimes the labor pains will increase and intensify.
    There might be a little discomfort.
    You just have to allow it to pass...
    You must give it the chance to live...
    The chance to breathe...
    The chance to spread...
    The chance to bring joy to others...

    You must give birth...to this thing called...
    LOVE!

    I hear you poet, something so wonderful and precious can be so painful to bring about, until we just let it happen. Love the way you flowed with this poet.

    Poet...now be careful with all those...I love you's...lol

    u gotta save some of those for me...I'm stingy...lol

    This piece was a spiritual medley of righteous prose

    with a psalmist quality...that left me feeling washed

    in the newness of having given birth...

    I feel you brother...sometimes we get so full...

    we have to let it go...let it flow...and give it to someone

    who needs it the most...

    ...You are a scribe to be revered
    Sharing my love with you...
