Tuesday - Strengthen

Every repetition strengthening the muscles
Pulling, pushing, stretching, contracting
Creating a haze of strain and struggling

The angel that was midwife to my birth
From me to recreated me heard those screams 
From pain-filled dying to new life crying

The world in its one language calling out
Every lesson in years of school merely practice
For the life time string of pearly lessons waiting

I raise the blinds each morning to observe again
Each observation changing hopefully acknowledged 
A pointy thorn into a marvelous rose blooming
