there is a life that grows inside you
you claim it is of your body yet it is not
you and one other began what lives
by grace of God within your womb
you and one other, united, as one
began a life, by grace of God, a life!
spirit fusing body to its soul
to live, to grow, to seek its Maker
individual, dependant, helpless
needing those who hold its life
to care, to nurture, to help it grow
and though merely man I must wonder
at your crazy notion of selfness
that would have the cake and eat it

 

at what point does this stain upon your life
you claim your private curse
become a treasured much loved infant
you’d joyful boast to Heaven
