From The Womb

by Ebonyavon

I began…
unseen with the naked eye microscopic if shown
not a solitary soul was aware of my presence
not even my mother…date of conception forever

A greater being from which all blessings flow
has granted me life. I was created for purpose
by he who has no faults as both history and faith show

As I grew in the dark safe haven of her womb
the melanin of my royal ancestors infused into my fair-toned skin,
I lay stilled and consumed

My senses formed and I gained ability,
however distant from my full potential
and the opportunity to assume my official place
as a multiple heir,

The woman unto which I will be born,
is my sole provider and protector,
for I am susceptible to all,
in each and every form dependent on her wholly

I thank both the woman and the man
in every respect, I am forever in their debt.
It is altogether my destiny and I accept…
give me life
