Extension of Me
In my womb, as he grew,
A part of me, but also he,
To be with me, on the other side
Of my body.
Then he was small, still part of me,
I wrapped him tight, beside my heart,
And to its beat, he goes to sleep
Growing rapidly, personality emerging,
We see him.
The smirks, the spunk, stubbornness, too
Who does he get that strong-will from?
And now his actions, humbling daily
He’s testing, pushing, displaying defiance
My lack, shortcomings, they’re all revealed
