Random poem 7/3/2012

Pregnant women. Their faces mingling

with each other – a kaleidoscope.

Does  the promise of a new life  make the pain

of giving birth– the howling

abdominal contractions, stinging vaginal tears, pain  upon  pain

to endure — all worth it?

Not knowing the answer, I’m left

wondering. For that is all I can do.

Despite the seemingly lofty title my eduction gave me.
