My Gift


Give birth. You’ve held my gift too long. Yes, my gift. It isn’t just for you, don’t you know that? I’m waiting on you.  I can’t move if you don’t move. I’m sorry, but you are holding me hostage. I need you to release. You’re past due. You’ve been pregnant. You’ve been full of this blessing. Yes, it’s daunting. No, I don’t know everything. But I know you have something I need. And I can’t move until you release it. I’m waiting on you.
