space (Photo credit: Sweetie187)

I tremble within my skin
Awaiting the birth of time
Fertility in the balance

Is this the great decision
To breed and build or just decline?
Mortality here but chance

I’m no mother in my soul
My womb is barren I suppose
And everything’s a dance

But some nights I dream a child
Has come so far across all space
Fertility in the balance
