A child closes their eyes, and the feeling of gravity releases… I float up into the atmosphere until the child opens their eyes, and I am forced to the ground by the weight of my love…
They tell me to revise They say I don't listen They say they'll be there
What do you want to be when you grow up? A doctor, astronaut, vet, famous A million thoughts race through the young girl's mind   Are you ready for your first day of school
    I Carried You For 9 months inside me Where No One Else Has The Privilege To Be  The Blood That Flows In Your Veins Is The Very Same Blood I Shared With You From My Own Veins
