Wild Abandon

Abandon everything but this
This love, born in you from the start
When you slid into this world
In a cry of rage and joy
All emotions contained in that sound
Placed carefully into a mother’s arms
When you became all eyes watching her
While she watched you
How safe you were in that moment of birth
And how safe you are now
Even though it feels more like dying
Even though you cry aloud with
What feels like rage
But might, secretly, be joy
Because everything is broken…
