A Turning Night

Feature Image

Growing belly, growing fear
Pressure within, pressure without
Joined together one lonely year
A thousand prayers, incessant doubt
Social choices made this day
Social changes mock my strife
One woman’s joy is another’s sin
When a mother is not a wife
A shaky hand, a blurry name
Ensnared in a panic stage
A page of life, a turning night
Back the same, not the same
Full of doubt and full of rage
The pressure within, the pressure without
The baby showers and wedding bells
A thousand thoughts in secret hell
A second turn, a snow white gown
A private guest beneath my train
A single dove is set in flight
A page in life, a turning night
