Resurrection.


I came forth,
Forced from my amniotic sac,
Resisting my egress,
From the security of the womb,
The umbilical cord cut,
Setting me adrift,
On life’s journey.

Suckling my mother’s breast,
Sustenance, comfort reside,
The milk of life flows,
Greedily,
Feasting until sated, gorged,
Sleep claims my eyes, safe,
In her warm embrace.

Nutured,
Guided,
Instructed,
Encouraged,
By maternal love.

Cherished,
Comforted,
Supported,
Shielded,
By maternal instinct.

As I lie,
Upon this field of despair,
Body ruined,
Of tortured mind,
Thinking of you, Mother,
Remember me,
Reminisce with me,
Do not mourn,
Celebrate,
For we shall meet again,
In resurrection.

This my submission to One Stop Poetry, for their Mother prompt.
