(bʉrt̸h)

birth (bʉrt̸h)
the time when something begins (especially life)

our mothers held the secrets to us this whole time,
and as we ask “why didn’t you ever tell me?”
they whisper a smile, “you wouldn’t have believed me.”

…some things can only be learned with time…

it is the reminder that they are the strongest species on earth,
and we are now one among them.
