Must I Push?
17. April 2019 at 09:00
When I was pregnant, I never knew I will have to PUSH hard

MUST I PUSH?


When I was pregnant,

I never knew I will have to PUSH hard

The conception was optimistically growing

The growth was gradually evidential

Not quite long,

I could no longer hide the fetus conceived inside


The fetus continually grew in size

The fetus wants to change status

The fetus wants to be a baby

The baby wants to become a child

The child wants to be an adult


Conception is not enough for this life's growth

I was not convenient anymore 

The flat tummy took a new but bigger shape

I anticipated seeing the one inside

The fetus also wants to run on a live stage


I ran to the comfort room

But no comfort.

I was told the room for the new transit in life is 

LABOR ROOM

That sounds scary, Labor room???


Labor room not playing room

Labor room, not fun-filled room

As I step to the Labor room

The experts to help bring forth the new life came

My nerves were calm


I expected them to bring out the growing wonder in me

Contrariwise, they firmly and repeatedly said to me 

YOU HAVE TO PUSH, you have got to PUSH hard!!!!!!!!


I asked, must I PUSH HARD???

I thought conception was sufficient

And bringing forth is easy

Again, I heard you have to PUSH and PUSH hard.....


PUSH TO BRING FORTH LIFE

PUSH TO OPEN THE DOORS

PUSH TO PREVENT DEATH

PUSH TO PRESERVE LIFE


I PUSHED, yes I conquered my fears 

I PUSHED HARD AND HARDER.........

My arms pushed along,

My feet participated in the push,

My head was slightly raised

My back was flat on the bed

My eyeballs were widely open

I sweat profusely

I screamed at the top of my voice

My nerves jumped out of relaxation

The pain was excruciating,

The pains aggravated when the joy was near

I tried it again,


The expert said few inches to go

Do it again

Just a little, Push hard dear

Now the final push!!!

Hmmmmn, I PUSHED

And it landed


I heard it cry

My bundle of joy landed

The cry was incessant

It cried I was relieved

The pain subsided


I turned to the right 

I saw it wrapped in a new cradle

My joy increased

The pain subsided

Soon, I forgot my pains

'Cos I've got the gain


Oh thank God I PUSHED,

Yes, I PUSHED HARD.


Don't give up, PUSH

Conception is not enough

A little PUSH will not bring forth

You have got to PUSH HARD

With your back on the ground


P Pray, Pursue, Persevere, Persist

U Until

S Something

H Happens
