The Conqueror’s Chronicle (Hour 10)

He finally said let’s have a baby girl.
I was unsure but willing.
As my belly grew, I placed my hands there to feel your kicks.
Our unspoken bond.
I knew you were a girl before the ultrasound.
I prayed often for God the creator of All to cover you.
Your original due date would have made you a Virgo so I selfishly asked if you could be a Libra like me.
The day of your arrival was unlike any other.
It was October 1,2006 and the pain was excruciating. I knew it was time for you to make your grand entrance.
Later that evening, our birthing story became a nightmare.
I dare not share the details because I don’t remember holding you.
My eyes were drowned in tears.

    1. Thank you, this piece is dedicated to my daughter she is now 15 years old. My birthing experience was traumatic but I am thankful I left the hospital with her in my arms.
