No regrets

Lo!

At the twinkling of my birth

just mere moments after leaving the birth canal

& still covered in blood & amniotic fluid

my doctor

(Who was lifting me up to show to my mother)

slipped & stumbled

letting me go

I began to plummet toward the earth

surely doomed —-

When at the last possible second

just a hair’s breadth away from eternal damnation & Hellfire

the attending Doula

caught me —

My whole life passed before my eyes

but I remember thinking

if I had to do it all over again

I wouldn’t change thing
