This inspirational pregnancy poem touches on the
process of baby development in pregnancy, and captures the baby as a social
citizen of the earth ; a toast of everyone starting from God – the
Creator of Mankind.
That baby is yours!
No! The baby is ours!
Hun-Hun! The baby is God’s!
The new-born to be is a miracle in progress
A single sperm cleaved to a single egg
The cleavage divided and subdivided
Into trillions of chromosome carrying cells
The genetics engineer put them together
The ‘G’ of God is seen in the ‘g’ of Genetics
A baby is God’s gift to all of us
That makes it a ‘Commonwealth.’
The fully formed wonder
Consists of manifold organs
Each a system within a sub-system
Textures different; functions varied
All united like states in a Commonwealth.
A child is a complexity within a mega–complexity
While in pregnancy a nation is being formed
See yourself begetting nations on the D-day
Handle the renewal of man with care
Do this on behalf of God and us.
Aren’t you greatly favored?
Stop the catalogues of complaints!
Cease to murmur!
Say to your fearful wavering heart: be still!
Later when the flood of joy flows forth
You will regret ever wishing you are not a woman
Will yourself to the right frequency
And deliver our commonwealth
Be a dutiful courier in pregnancy
Remain faithful and beautiful!
