No regrets


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 —-

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

When at the last possible second, 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
