it has been months of loneliness
Nights and days of forlornness
Months of internal breakdowns
Years of barrenness
But how long shall i eat the bitterness
Of these seeds?
Its every maiden's dream to conceive
To witness a product of her womb flourishing
To eat the fruits of her mother nature
But how hard can it be for me to nourish?
Will i ever wait with no rush?
A tree flourish without the will of the earth
But how hard can it be for my manly sweet leaf to water the seed in me for me to carry the joys of motherhood?
How long shall i reap the emptiness of my womb?
How long shall i sob my heart out?
How long shall i wait?
