The Greatest Gift?


What is the Greatest Gift?

The Gift of Life Perhaps?

The Risking Life to Birth

A Child?

Is Born.

A Girl is Grown.

Is Motherhood.

Is Sisterhood.

Outgrows all Men.


(Pause to Wonder. Women Know.)


Or Baby Boy,

A Bouncing Ever More.

Boundlessly Bonded.

Martian Men: Maternally Maintained.

We cannot know

That 

We cannot live.


And so,

The Greatest Gift?

Besides the Bloodiest Of Beautiful

Life-Riskingly 

Sacrificial 

Giving Birthings,

Or Equally, 

Adopting

Fostering

Beyond Imaginings.


The Other End Of Life,

Of Husband or Wife,

Of Brother Sister Friend or Foe,

Or Someone Else

We Know,


You Know,

Deep in our Darkest,

Fearless,

Birthed Blackest Brightest

Brilliant Joyful

Heart.

A Fearless Death.

Embracing,

Showing.

How to Die.

Accepting, Loving.

Showing.

Knowing.

Showing.

SHOWING.

How to Live.

With Fearless Loving Heart.

When You Can.

Give This Greatest Gift.



Love,

Alan
