This is a poem I wrote when I was eighteen and one of my favorites. When I wrote this, I also wrote poems for my mother and about womanhood.

Birth
A drop of His creation and earthAir and bloodCombine, unite and mergeAlone and in darknessIn warmth and her tendernessGiving shape, giving formTo a being by its creatorOn Heaven and on earthA period of courage and waitCreating an eternal affinity, a commitmentAnd finally through the dark portals of its originIt is released to the eyes of the worldFrom darkness to lightFrom peace to noiseExposed and facing humanityEntering, starting the journey of mortalityA making, a givingGiving life to such mirthA miracle known as birth.:)
