The Beautiful Becoming

Born [Intro poem] 

For the longest of time
I had my eyes closed
All I saw was darkness
Until I was birth out into the open
Light flashed into my life
Like a reward given to me a token
Conceived was I
Born was I into the world
A heart and lungs God gave me
I opened up my eyes
And I became a living breathing
Human work of art
I became poetry
