Birth

I have been birthed with the knowledge of everything — beautiful; destroyed and corrupted

Birth is a short poem written by Ashley Robyn Alvarez and shared with The Ugly Writers under the new theme Creating Sparks for the month of December

Birth

Birth

My fingertips are laced with honey.
I have come out of a beehive,
sweet and strong.
I am my own magnum opus.
A universe is what I am.
I am all of me, yet I am a void.

I have been birthed with the knowledge of everything —
beautiful; destroyed and corrupted
as I have bloomed in the realm of my fate.
That is what makes me my greatest piece.
I am my own magnum opus.
I have been built to fall down and back up again.

to the earth we return
