A reflection on the experience of birth; a sliver


I find myself to be one of the most powerful people on the planet. My body ricochets within and to the discerning eye, nothing is happening, only i know that a strange feeling,coming and going, invades within my body, threatening to bring me down, if I allow it.
Which I don't.
I,strong, powerful, breathe, slowly, deeply, skillfully, I maneuver through the feelings, allowing them to come and go and pass me through.
As the feelings escalate, I become a surfer, skillfully navigating the horizon.
I finally land on solid ground, loooking around proudly at the faces that have assisted me.
