Motherhood. It must know
no shame, no hesitation.
Mothers must not bite their lips and
clench their fists to clamp down
their screams as our children are born.
They must let the world know
that life wondrous has come into it.
They must love, nurture, protect
fiercely, freely, openly, unabashedly.
For Motherhood must mean,
what nature meant it to be.
