Birth, in my experience.

Sweat, blood, matter

An exhausted body

Deflated balloon

The lullaby of her triumphant breath

"I brought him into the world"

Matted hair

Sticky skin

Sterile environment, the nurses quiet but proud

We have no concept of what we've won today

 The battle was fought by the only soldier that could

When he opens his eyes, holding my finger

Suddenly I understand

This is who I fought for

This is who I'll cradle for the rest of forever
