22. my breath of life

Well i was born in the midst o’ the morn.
The breath of life, as i opened my eyes.
At the start of December, not that i remember.
My momma says “was you born in a barn!?”
I say’d “you should know, you were there.”
It’s funny because…
The scales say’d i weighed the same
As the time on the wall in the maternity hall.
The Tock had started Ticking,
My story had then begun.
Finally for myself breathing
Before learning how to run.
