Birth is bloody

Aching

Growing with each contraction

Setting forth to bear life

I strain against the pain

Of this unseen birth

 

What would leaning in be like?

 

This is a set before time birth

A “Just for this time and place” resurrection

Untold hope unleashing

From the dark stillness of the womb

 

It was quiet and safe there

 

It’s messy here in the

-in between-

As cords and entanglements rip and need to be cut

The groaning grows louder

My sides split

 

As His was pierced

 

Weeping now

For the years this birth is erasing

Washing away the pain

Evacuating years of grief

To give way to new life

 

Birth is bloody

Painful

Yet gives way to

Life

Being

Hopeful

Resurrected

 

As Always,

Bethany
