No regrets

Lo!

Just mere seconds after my birth

the doctor, who was lifting me up to show

to my elated mother,

suddenly stumbled

and I slipped out of his hands

It all happened very fast,

but at the last possible second,

the attending doula

 — caught me —

Time stopped.

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
