Aching Womb

My womb aches

Sometimes it aches more

Sometimes it aches less

My womb aches.

 

I did all things right;

Went to university,

Met and married a good man

Then I was ready to bear fruit

My womb aches.

 

Then I was ready to bear fruit

Found a good job

Bought a home, with my baby in mind

My womb aches.

 

Two losses in between

Six years on, am still waiting

Joyfully, I wait

My womb aches.

 

Joyfully, I wait, I cry

Life’s taught me a lesson

Focus on things I have control over

I smile, that I can control

Joyfully, I wait

My womb aches.
