I Knew

My head has risen up,

curiosity is at it's peak

How do I get out of this?

What even is this?

this barrier that's holding me captive..

I want to get out,



I know.

My fluctuating vocal chords have never been used

so much and so hard in my life.

You rub your eyes,

your sheets are moved.

You heard me.

You reach in,

and take me away from the captivity

that I longed to leave.

& place me on the warm fuzzy ground

I giggle.

I'm mobile,

Curiosity is even higher than before.

I'm able to roam. 

All 4's 

I go on,

and there you are. 

cheering me on.

Beckoning me

to make movements.

You push me,

but the good kind.

you push me 

to move farther than I did before. 

Your smile makes me smile.

& i knew

from the beginning

you created me.
