    there comes a time when the womb is full
    and the aches and pains of life up until now
    are a reflection on how you’ve lived your life
    how some women have lived right and never feel pain
    when their womb is full

    and some women have lived life by their hearts
    and have made mistakes and ended lives
    and stopped their ability to create
    and when their womb is full
    they are in constant pain from the reminders

    and some women have never really cared
    because they don’t have regrets but then made one
    big mistake that they must carry for the rest of their lives
    and now when their womb is full, they do care7
    because it’s a reminder of the hell they’ve put upon themselves

    when the womb is full and then sheds itself
    it’s natures way of saying lets start fresh let’s build anew
    but it’s also a reminder of what you may never have
    hurts you have once endured
    pains that you can push to the back of your mind
    until once again the womb is full

    wish that there was no such connection
    but the connection is all too real
    i wonder those who have had their womb removed
    does the pain now stop...do they heal?
    or is the total absence of the womb
    just another cross to bear...for real

    when the womb is full

    I HEAR YOU AND I FEEL YOU TOO!

    Three times my womb was full , only one survived...the pain so great the womb so full it turned into a downward pull and as I said goodbye to my last chance of reproduction I felt less than a woman....until! The womb that was ,was no more, but there is still so much in store! I have the phantom pains each month and still countdown to this one and that ones intended birth...and I mourn for my babies whose only sin was a womb to weak to carry them in...."Do not weep for what you lost, Thank God for what you have!"

    Blessings On Ya House!

    Poignant piece my sista , deep ,deep!;)

    I love the analogy between the womb and life ( of a woman )...

    it is said that we cannot retain all memories, so we only remember those which have had an impact in some way, so too for life experiences I think, we go through them for a reason, and sometimes that reason is not clear...and sometimes we have to remember we are only human and come with faults, so we are bound to make mistakes, have regrets....

    cindy - after two, i also got "fixed" but it wasn't because i was afraid of being hippy...i had other reasons that still haunt me...luckily, i've got a few minutes before menopause tho. :lol:

    msluciousb - i can relate and i know you know what i am touching on...it's just the connection...i know you feel my vibe...i was worried at first that people would think i was being weird by talking about this...but i am so glad that so many can relate...plus, you know u my gurl! :lol:

    ndeep - yes you can have a full womb and still be a virgin, you don't have to have experienced sex...just be functional...life and it's daily stresses are also connected to the womb.

    kitana - you've got it...yep...but life is connected to that push and pull in the womb...u feelin' me?

    Rich - thank you for being bold enough to recognize the connection, but then again...you've always been able to understand me. ^5 on that!

    sometimes when the womb is full pain regret direction insight happiness love can be all wrapped into one when the womb is full
