A New Birth
I was born at twenty-one
Thrust out of the womb
Released into the newness of life
Born, at twenty one
Eyes opened to the world
Crying, struggling, fighting
Trying to make sense of it all
Yes, I was only born at twenty-one
Borne out of education
Borne out of society’s expectations
Borne out of comfort, out of the shield
Though I lived before
I was only truly born at twenty-one.
And so, as a new born
I stumble and fall, but I get back up
Because I have been born.
When these years pass, I’ll look back
As I celebrate this new birth.
