Birth, Rebirth

Birth, Rebirth

Birth, Rebirth 1920 1194 Patrick Connors

I cannot live without
A spirit of hope for this day
To see and feel eternal things
Bud and begin to bloom and breathe

Waiting, much like praying
And writing poems by hand
Builds up muscle and strength
Substance and depth

Cramps and pains are inevitable
They may seem final to some
But delay is not denial
Of what is to come
