Real Women Have Babies
 by Gloria Poole, RN, artist of Missouri and Georgia

Real women have babies;
yes they do.
They use their ovaries
and eggs
and mix them with sperm
the usual way
in their womb
and plant them there
in the soft cushy nest
of their inner part
and they water them
and they feed them every day
and watch with tender care
their every move,
and every bite
and every social contact
to avoid germs
and pollutants
and evil.

They watch their bellies grow
And bigger.
And biggest.
Til their sides pop
and stretch marks appear
and they feel as if
they will scream
from the weight
on their ribs and spine
and the pressure on their bladder.

But then,
nature takes its course,
and the laboring begins,
laboring to push baby
into the world,
alive and well,
and screaming lustily,
with outrage at,
being shoved through
a tiny channel,
into the very cold,

from human body warmth,

And into the hands of sometimes
 barely grasping ,
a wriggling, screaming baby.
And then.
O, my!
Then, motherhood instinct kicks
into overdrive,
And she sees her baby.
Her precious tiny reproduction
of herself and her man.
And her heart,
 swells with joy,
and love,
til she feels
it will burst.

And she's overcome,
with emotion,
and love,
for her husband,
and for her baby
and relief.
Relief with a capital R.
Relief:  her baby is born!
Relief:  her baby is alive!
Relief:  her baby is breathing!
Relief:  her baby is proof,
that she is a,

Also, please see the Mother's Day tribute I made on my Gloria's blog, mini exhibit of art blog at, yesterday.  I also am the mother of two grown daughters and the grandmother of seven minor children. I adore my grandchildren. I consider them GOD's rewards to me for having survived trauma twice, and endured hardship to stay true to Christian beliefs and the commandments of GOD; and for believing that the word of GOD as spoken to Adam and Eve, the first humans on earth, "to be fruitful and multiply" [Genesis 1:27-28, KJV] were still GOD's first and foremost instruction to every human.
