Like a woman in labor, in much pain to bring forth her child, we all labor to bring forth our will.

Labor pains plague me,

as the child tries to rip itself

from my womb.

Biting and clawing

with tooth and nail,

It crawls, demanding

its place in existence.

It gnaws through its cord,

No longer wishing to be attached.


It is not to be controlled,

We are merely vehicles.

We carry it within us,

Until it is ready to come forth,

Existing without us.


We are incubators,

Carrying the divine.

Supplying a way for

It to grow, becoming defined,

Until the time when all of its

Parts our fully defined

And ready to be knit together.


That time is upon us.



No longer content to exist in

The comfort of the womb,

Waiting for its time

To come forth and be,

Our will instead declares

That it is time

And comes whether we are

Ready or not,

And we never know the hour.

Conceived with contributions

From the female and the male,

It responds with defiance to

The nurturings of mothers,

And the dominance imposed by fathers.


In rebellion, it turns on those who made it
And screams out for its independence,
Seeking out freedom from being confined,
Only wanting to create
And tired of being refused
That chance by the laws and guidelines
Man has placed upon it.

 I can not fight its coming.
I can only labor to help
Bring it forth.
The more I fight,
The more painful it will be.


The only and greatest sin would be

To abort it, discard it and

Deny it the right to exist,

exploring, learning, developing

and growing,

coming to peace with itself.


In doing so, we deny

that which makes us

what we are. 

One can not have the power

Of being a mother

If not with child.

One can not be a creator,

If one denies its creation.


 For, once brought forth,
It will grow in strength,
Creating a new reality
That suits its purpose,
Discarding all
that held it back from
being realized.

Having the experience of labor 3 times all I can say is that I love the kid but can do without the labor.

Wow. I never thought of the will struggling to burst free from the womb of our minds like you have written so dynamically and powerfully. Well done--you made me think!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
