Poem translated from Arabic..

“I always heard that the pain of childbirth is unbearable

though my pregnancy was of another kind and my labour

was slow making my pain like blood drops

seepage in an elevated gutter after the first rain … 

It falls drop after drop as a cruel torturing I am

not used to … As a mass of light it lit the world

and crept rebelling from my cervix …

My womb narrowed on hear so it looked for

a world to contain here … Or it matured of

the fire of my heart and can’t bear its

warmth … I will continue my way as a

mother … Because a mother needs time

to understand that here embryo is

now independent of her world …”
