Birth stories on your insta reel vs mine was a horror.

I birthed your baby

Was that not enough

That I gave you

my love

my life

my trust

And you turned your back as if it was lust

And you turned your head as if it wasn’t enough

I birthed your baby

I gave it our name

And you left me behind in the blood of our babe

And you left us behind in the shell of disaster

And you left them behind as if it was easy to do

I birthed our baby

Was that not enough

I died as a women for you to laugh

I died as a women for you to mock

I died as a women begging for that man

That man in the images of other women’s birth stories

Cradling their women bathing their women holding their women caring for their women,

What is wrong with me?
