Who knew the pressure would be so intense?
Who knew that the desire to simply run away from it would be so overwhelming.
Who knew the pressure would leave black and blue marks on my husband’s hands
Who knew that screaming would NOT decrease the pressure but felt good anyways
Who knew why people live through this every single day despite this painful pressure
Who knew that I’d feel like I was being split inside into two
Who knew the pressure would make me weep when it finally ended.
“It’s okay now, push and push….ah…here he is !”
So gentlemen (who will never really know) and ladies(some of you who may already know),
Birthing is the experience that creates the most pressure
Inside and outside, physically and mentally.
More stressful painful pressure to finish the task than any job or project or argument or schooling.
The most challenging intense pressure,
With the most amazing reward
