    The words are straining to be birth
    And their intensity increase my girth
    They don't understand gestation
    They long for instaneous manifestion

    Oh my God I think my water just broke
    And trying to hold back the flow is a joke
    Not even close to my appointed time or due date
    But poetry won't be confined to anyone's dictate

    It wants to come out right now, this very hour
    Its head breaks through the canal with power
    Oh no there is no holding it back any more
    For its body is flowing through my core

    Poetry is born on it own sweet time
    It does not need a reason for the rhyme
    I cannot force it or coerce it to come
    It only comes when it feels welcome

    Oh how I love my sweet baby, POETRY​

    Very outstanding and creative form! In the words of Chingy, "I like the way you do that right thure!" I was feelin how you took writing poetry and paralled that to birthing a child into the world. That's was tight! Best of luck and verbs to ya with the rest of your poetic youngins on the way!
