A song about the hope of becoming a mother.
Infertility Will it be a girl or boy, comparison’s the thief of joy But so’s a mother’s love devoid, before a chance to start And shiny cars and jewels and clothes, crammed and casted in a mold Substitute the babe‐shaped hole, that used to be my heart Cogito ergo sum, Descartes, but you don’t think, therefore you aren’t The fraying thread that broke my back‐Spun lyrically to art “Hello, hi and how are you, Very, very good thank you, You look great, and you do too.” I’m two‐faced to the world. Your x my y, intertwined, the you and me in the flesh The future that will never be, will always be a guess The levees broke my flooded ducts, this message soon will self destruct You and me now face the world, we have to be enough Swollen eyes, puffy face, mascara stained pillowcase Hollow as Hollywood ‐ Through good times and tough We have to be enough We have to be enough
