The Struggle of Flesh

I remember when all I had

I remember when all I had were those well-light pictures.

I remember when all I had were those well-light pictures. Clean clothes, satisfied looks

I remember when all I had were those well-light pictures. Clean clothes, satisfied looks and a warm embrace.

But those are only stills,

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment to help us understand

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment to help us understand that our insides

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment to help us understand that our insides must be ripped

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment to help us understand that our insides must be ripped before something new

But those are only stills, snaps of a moment to help us understand that our insides must be ripped before something new can have its likelihood.

Suddenly,

Suddenly, the world's on its head

Suddenly, the world's on its head and we no longer know

Suddenly, the world's on its head and we no longer know what's in store for us...

except the struggle.

For we must now move

For we must now move and venture out further

For we must now move and venture out further with the knowledge

For we must now move and venture out further with the knowledge that our heart

For we must now move and venture out further with the knowledge that our heart no longer beats

For we must now move and venture out further with the knowledge that our heart no longer beats between our arms.

It's since been lodged

It's since been lodged in a delicate cage

It's since been lodged in a delicate cage the tiniest bag of flesh;

It's since been lodged in a delicate cage the tiniest bag of flesh; an act of God

known

known as

known as childbirth.
