Birth Pangs

Impregnate my soul!
Your warm tears embrace my cheek;
Birth pangs of new life.

Anew

Our self-doubt rings hard in our ears,

But our futures can be unlike our pasts.

We evolve in our identities and desires,

Studying life, othersĀ and ourselves.

We are capable of innovation,

We can trust anew,

We deserve unimaginable joy.
