The labor pains come

Bringing pressure with the joy

The waters roar around her

Yet she rest in the peace of His love

Hidden within the Tree of Life

Feeding on the Fruit of the Spirit

She rests; finding her breath

Connected to her Creator

As the pain of labor increases within

She holds fast through the pressure

Gripping the truth she knows in her heart-

The joy of what's to come

Trusting through every wave of pain

It will be worth it in the end

With every contraction she cries

Fighting her own fear with faith

Never losing her joy

Never letting go of hope

Remaining hidden and safe

Abiding in her nest

She sees the storm surround her

Bringing fear with the might of it's waves

She doesn't give in –

But feels the pressure increasing

Both around her, and within

One last contraction leaves her screaming

And as she screams, the Lion roars

The storm ceases –

And all is silenced

Her time has finally come

Beholding something new

Entrusted into her hands

She breathes, resting in the unity of her beloved

Her Creator; Her maker...

Her lion and her lamb.

Sarah Camille Soltani Icely
