My First Day

I can only imagine the day of my birth, struggling from my mother’s womb, and feeling the joy of first seeing her. The feeling of fear and confusion when the midwife briefly takes me away, and inquisitiveness when my father lifts me first. I cry, and am returned to my mother, snug and happy. Bliss.
