Through life’s curves and winds,
And fetal incubation grind,
Whatever the struggle -
It can be diminished,
Aptly if you persevere,
and make it to the Finish.
Away from the ties,
And the fearful lies,
Lies the truth -
For those who can face it.
Your bulging belly isn’t a harrowing sign
of the life malign, but an essence of humanity,
From its Foundation to its Folly.
You don’t let your mistakes define you,
Wallow and bind you;
You learn and let them refine you.
They may look down at the child,
Disadvantaged and bastard;
Resolute you dismiss the force
Of sanctity’s standard.
Its a force you’ve overcome,
manifest in the woman you’ve become,
You, you confounded youth.
