Birth

by nataliya pilshchykova

It's all about being there,
It's all about holding hands,
It's all about saying that you can!
It's not about doctors, nurses.
It's not about beds and drips.
It's not about those restraining forces that you can think of on your trip.
It's all about you own journey.
It's all about your own faith
It's all about your own body, that can birth life
No matter what they say!

Too linear with not much depth.

I liked the joy and structural strength of this one. A compact, postive affirmation of giving birth.
