I am born

Scrolling through twitter I came across a quote from a poem: "I am not born yet/O hear me." I had no idea where it was from, what it was about, who wrote it, nothing. But it sparked something in me, and I began to write.

I am not born yet
And yet
I am born one hundred times a day
One thousand times a day
Painfully, preciously
I am born into every moment
I craft myself
I build myself
I am trying to be born
I take my first feeble steps
I fall
I fail
I rise
I am born again
The crys of a newborn child
fill my heart
ring in my ears
I breathe new life
I am born
I reach
I fall
I rise
And again.
