Pregnant With Promise

This work
This pain
This hardship
This is me in labor
Getting ready
To give birth
To something
Wonderful 
Beautiful
New
This struggle
This tussle
This longing
Is the gestation period
This hunger
This thirst
This impatience
I wait
And I want
And I need
For today
To make space
For the rise of tomorrow
For when the great time to come
Is no longer soon
But now
