Pain is a harsh reminder of one’s humanness.
It weakens you.
The vulnerability and the tears
From the moment I opened my eyes until now,
I remembered that I would never ever be in full control.
That sometimes I need to stop
Take care of myself
Gain my strength back.
And during that time
I wished that someone would rub my womb
And tell me that I’m ok
Just as I am.
I wanted a hug from you.
And I craved my mother’s lentil soup.
